I took another go at using my Stencil Butters to get the look of gilding wax. Started with dark gray, almost black, cs that got dry embossed with this snowflake swirl folder. Using a flat headed sponge dauber sprayed with water to get it moist, I dipped the sponge into the pot of silver Stencil Butter to just pick up a small amount then squeezed a small amount of white glue on the glass mat and mixed all together with the dauber. Then gently swiped the cs snowflakes. As the butter was drying out I added a spray of water to the mat to keep the mixture wet and kept sponging till I was happy. What fun and so happy with the results. Sentiment is stamped in clear embossing ink then heat set with black embossing powder. I had previously created the mat layer for the wonderful word with the Silhouette and had in the folder with the stamps. The edges of the piece got rubbed with the black ink pad after being trimmed to size. Then mounted on white cs base. I do wish the shimmer showed in the photo.
