Peace Dove

Designed by Sue Dix, Sweet Dixie Peace Dove stamps from Personal Impressions are so intricate, I wanted to see if the detail would still be kept using Gilding Flakes. 

A 5" MDF Tag was painted in Black Gesso  when dry the Large Dove
 image was stamped onto the tag using IndigoBlu FlitterGlue.

IndigoBlu Manchester Tart Gilding Flakes a beautiful mixture of coppery, silver & gold tones was applied to the stamped image with Champagne coloured Gem Stones 
added to give dimension.

I coloured the Peace Dove using Posca Pens giving an almost Folk Art look in contrast 
with the Black background.

The Peace Sentiment also from the Peace Dove stamp set was stamped and applied in the same way.

Gilding wax was added to the outer edge of the tag and a co-ordinating bow with gemstone.
Creating a most colourful addition to your Christmas decorations I hope you agree...?

Thank you Teresa, i'm always worried that clear stamps will not withstand the pull of the flitterglu's strength but these worked perfectly.. I'm sure you will produce some stunning makes xx
