Just over one week left for this challenge hosted by Cathy!





Videos Tutorials:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo_rGlqhvnM using flitter glue applied with a brush (great tip) and spreading tiny amounts of flakes with her fingertips.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXr-kVq5z3Q flakes through a stencil onto double sided sticky sheet, if you have time it's a good laugh too! Think you'd need a fairly robust stencil too, not a delicate one.

    • Cards only with stenciling, following monthly theme
    • CAS design (clean and simple) - definition on sidebar
    • Include link to challenge on your blog post
    • Enter up to three (3) times

CAS Stencil April 2020 Challenge


Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Cathy!


Message from Cathy
Hi everyone, gilding flakes come in a gorgeous array of colours and can really add shimmer and shine! You can apply them with double sided adhesive tape, tacky when dry gel or embossing powder, or glue that is tacky when dry. Just remember to keep fans off and no heavy breathing!
