Oriental Dragons

Oriental Dragons

Products needed to make this card include :

Versamark Ink Pad
Black Card 
Red Vellum 
1 DL Blank Card
Red Alcohol Marker 
Gold Embossing Powder
Gilding Flakes
A Small Piece of Cut and Dry
PVA Glue

Cut Vellum, Black Card and White Card to fit for matting and layering.
Take Black card and using either talc or an anti static bag dust the card.
Stamp the Serenity Prayer from the Oriental companion set and stamp using versamark, cover with embossing powder and tap off in usual way and heat set.
Whilst you have the versamark and embossing powder out you can do the 3 coins on some of the remainder of the black card.

Next I used the piece of cut and dry and pva to make a glue pad ... just add a teaspoon of the glue and work it into the cut and dry. Dust another piece of the black card ready for use, ink up the dragon stamps with the ' Glue pad '  in the same way you would use an ink pad. Put the stamps straight into water to soak the remainder of the glue off. These will clean off very well with no effort.

Using the gilding flakes of choice cover the Stamped Dragons and buff to a shine. Then put to one side to cut out. This will take a while.

Take the bamboo stamp from the oriental companions set and stamp round the edge of the card using the Colour Chemistry Sepia ink pad. Then take your red alcohol marker and edge the card with it. You can also do this with an ink pad if you prefer.

Finally after cutting out your Dragons and discs matt and layer the card and mount the onto it.

Thanks for Looking
