*Video: Simple way to add Gilding Flakes to Alcohol Ink Background

Remember this card where I added Gilding Flakes to my Alcohol Inked Background??? I received a ton of emails and PM’s asking me how I did it so I’ve got a 2 minute video to show you just how! You can watch the video by clicking HERE and heading over to my youtube channel and watch in HD. Comments and thumbs up on the video are much appreciated!

See how easy it is?? There are a few different ways of doing it. You can use a sticky glue pen or any glue that dries tacky and apply it to your alcohol inked background once it has dried.  Once the glue dries, you can press the Gilding Flakes into it and they will stick! I like my way just because it’s faster and I don’t have to pull out another supply, lol! Lazy much?

    Hello, I am wondering if you spray with kamar varnish first or after or at all and do you use any other sprays as in a uv protector. Thank you for posting this. I really want to use the flakes but didn’t know how 😃
