The current challenge at LOC is Anything Goes - Dark Themed,
sponsored by Limited Runs and Smeared Ink
My DT card uses Limited Runs Whootie Owl bonus set.
I wanted to try out gilding flakes techniques on this card.
I started off with a Docrafts Papermania brown square card blank made from recycled paper and matted it with dark brown card from my scrap folders.
I printed the owl digi on another brown card and cut the image down to fit.
I wanted a feather image on the left hand side so I found a Darkroom Door rubber stamp for this. The technique is to make a 'glue pad' using some foam and glue - I used Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue - and then apply this to the stamp.
I then used Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes by applying them to the glue and pressing down. I used a rough sponge to remove the excess.
For the small dots on the right hand owls I used a pen-type Quickie Glue and applied the gilding flakes in a similar manner.

Final touches to the card are a little Promarker and some liquid pearls for the beaks...
