Hi everyone, I'm the host for this months CAS Stencil and the technique is gilding flakes!
There are a few ways to apply these, double sided tape, tacky when dry gel medium or embossing powder or flake glue, which is tacky when dry.
The design team have some great cards to inspire you, and there are some videos explaining the techniques on the blog site, so I hope you can play along.
I applied flitter glue with a piece of wet & dry sponge through my stencil. Be sure to put you stencil straight into a tray of water afterwards so the glue doesn't dry on it!
When the glue was tacky I placed on some of the Pentart metal flakes, these seemed like larger pieces than other flakes that I've used.
I also used a modified shoe box with the sides cut low when rubbing the flakes in, this contained the shiny mess quite well!
I'm linking up to these challenges:
