Labels Galore

In this months issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft there is a very useful label die cut and stamp set

I went through my pile of odd pieces of card and cut these out. The lacy border looks very effective against a coloured background
And this is my first card made using them! The little wooden bird was coloured with my French Lavender gilding wax to match the flowers.

Gilding Waxes on White Card

After having fun using the gilding waxes on black  - I thought I try them out on white card. Obviously the effect is a lot more subtle, but still gives a lovely sheen!

Rediscovering Gilding Wax

I bought 3 pots of gilding wax a couple of years ago at a Papercraft fair, but apart from decorating some wooden shapes, have never used then and they languished at the back of the shelf

I then spotted someone demonstrating using them on a piece of embossed black card, whilst flicking through the crafting channels on TV, and was impressed with the effect they had! I dug mine out and had a play.

The 3 colours I have are lavender, teal and spring green - but now I am very temped to get silver and gold in time for the Christmas makes.
