Inka Gold.

Good afternoon all, I do hope that your week has gone well. It has been another busy one for the Rice household , with so many different activities going on.

I had a wonderful time on Tuesday when I spent the afternoon card making with a group of carers. I was thrilled to be ask to join in these activities as part of the Carers Trust for Cheshire . It is so important that carers are recognised as they give up their time looking after loved ones, often unpaid and very time consuming. I met the most wonderful people , each one with a moving story, I felt quite humble.

It is great to be able to give something back and I am really looking forward to going back and spending time with groups in other areas.

Today I thought I would share one of my samples from the recent Hochanda shows with Rossella. I am so thrilled that Clarity have started stocking Inka Gold. As you know this is a favourite product of mine and I have been using them in workshops for the past couple of years.

One of my favourite techniques is to paint with it.

I used the fabulous new floral stamps designed by Tina. I stamped in VersaMark ink and used clear embossing powder , this is great as it gives a raised edge which helps with the painting.

Now you can take some of the Inka gold and mix it with water on your craft mat, but I like to just add some water and paint straight from the pot. This also helps stopping the product from drying out and cracking. Remember I have a " nightly ritual " when I put my Inka Gold to bed , I spritz them first with water ...

The shine on these is just brilliant

And it is great for some flicking too....( just watch out dogs,,,,oh no...too late...Tess and Eric have gold flecks on them now!!!)

Some matting and layering

I do love the effect of these many different uses...and the colours blend too...

I thoroughly enjoyed all the shows with Rossella , and she is back on our screens tomorrow...

do tune in...

I must go, the lovely man from DPD has just delivered my latest Clarity order...oh I do get excited when is like Christmas every couple of weeks...

Have a most wonderful weekend...

Much love and hugs
