Gilding Flakes

I just discovered gilding flakes after watching Sue Wilson's you tube video.  I think it may be my all time favorite!  You can't appreciate the shimmer in the photos, but it's quite reflective.

The stamp was a Penny Black "Wistful".  I used a gold leaf pen (Krylon 18K) to trim the outside edge of the card stock she was stamped on, then inset it into a co-coordinating color card stock frame (to keep bulk down).  The sentiment was embossed in gold.
