TJ Inkspirations - Gilding Flakes as Grout

I have been in love with Gilding Flakes for a long  time. They add great shine and luxury to stamped cards and project. Today I have a video tutorial for you using the flakes between pieces of designer paper - reminiscent of grout.

While I used the technique with a Mother's Day card, using the You are the World Set, you could use this background for any kind of card, changing the mood of the card with the paper. It's very versatile.

 Here are the products we are using in today's tutorial:

Today we launch the third technique video tutorial this year from Technique Junkies.  Our card today use Nuvo Gilding Flakes as grout for a designer paper chevron background. Here is our card:

The full tutorial is on the video, here:

I know this video is a bit longer than the other two i have done. I did narrate as I went along - it is much harder to speed up and cut my silly rambling when I need to. I hope you enjoy it in any case.

I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!
