Red & Purple inka gold


Hi everyone, I've been playing with a couple of new Inka gold colours and a new die.
The new pastes are moist and creamy compared to my old ones!
The colours are marsala and hydrangea.

I put some paste on a craft mat and mixed in some water, then smooshed some card stock into it.
Here's a closer look at the shimmer.

I didn't spend time trying to match up the negative and positive hearts so the inlaid ones are a bit mismatched!

I'm linking up to a few challenges:

Color Hues red and purple theme

Allsorts, anything goes with the option of something new

Inka Gold in marsala and hydrangea; heart die brand unknown as gifted by a friend; Stampin Up Express Yourself sentiment ; versafine clair nocturne ink & clear ep; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die.
Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

HI Cathy
Happy 2022, and thanks for popping over it is really appreciated, and love the use here of the Inka gold paints, Ive only ever owned one a gold and it dried out rather quickly in our climate and I threw it out, then read how you can revitalise them!
Tooo late! pink and hearts are most apt!
Thanks for Sharing, God bless and keep you safe, and all those you love, hugs Shaz in Oz.x
