Green and Gold inka gold


Hi everyone, I'm using up some scraps of card left from smooshing inka gold paste and water on a craft mat.
Here's a closer look at the shimmer.

The die is one I bought recently although it was released in 2014.
(I do wish dies weren't retired as I'm usually slow to find them lol!)

I'm linking up to these challenges:

I've used the diagonal diecut, layers and smooshing as my free choice.
My sentiment stamp is a favourite from Paper Smooches - Sentiment Sampler.
There is no date on the set but sadly I think the company went out of business in 2020.

Double D, want us to use green.
(I hope using gold is ok too)

Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge, without the option of wings.

The shine is awesome and I like that tree die so much. My inka gold all dried up. I can use it if I scrap some out and mix with water. Scrapping it out is the hard part!
