I wanted a smudy background look for this piece so I decided initally to edge my die cut shape I had my image on with some of the Viva Inka Gold. Inka Gold is an elegant shimmering colour paste that you apply and polish to your desired surface. I simply took a small amount from the jar, and rubbed around the edge of my die cut with my finger.
Lastly I decided I wanted to add further colour and shine to my background so I used the Viva Precious Metal which is a liquid metal effect colour paint. I used the bronze shade and applied sparingly to create the smudy background to match the swirly background paper. I also painted my sentiment piece with this product. To finish the card I added some brown ruffled ribbon and a glitter prima flower in coordinating shades.
So it really was a bit of an experiementation and lots of fun with these products this week, and thanks to the inspiration photo I used colours I don't always tend to reach for.
I am so looking forward to seeing what our challenge participants come up with. Be sure to check out the Party Time Tuesdays Blog for all the Challenge Instructions and Criteria and whilst there be further inspired by the fabulous designs from the other Party Planners.
