Supplies you will need:

Instructions

  1. Cut a strip of Black Cardstock 11" x 3"
  2. Ink Crow on VersaMark Stamp Pad. Stamp Crow near left side of border. Sprinkle Verdigris Embossing powder over the stamped image. Tap excess embossing powder onto a clean sheet of paper and transfer the excess back into the container. Use a heat gun to melt the embossing powder.
  3. When cool, stamp the Flourished Crow beside the Verdigris crow using Moonlight White ink.
  4. Ink As you Dream on VersaMark Stamp Pad and stamp beside Flourished Crow. Sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder. Tap excess embossing powder onto a clean sheet of paper and transfer the excess back into the container. Use a heat gun to melt the embossing powder.
  5. Next to the quotation, stamp the crow (using any dye ink pad) and use a fine brush to apply 2 coats of Gold Size. Allow the first coat to dry before applying the second. Lay a sheet of Transfer gold, gold side down, on the size and gently rub. The gold leaf will adhere to the size. Dust off any excess gold. Burnish, if desired.
  6. Ink Crow on Versamark Stamp Pad and stamp at the ends of the border. (If you stamp this first, all the embossing powder you use for the other crows will stick to it!)
  7. Adhere your Murder of Crows to scrapbook page or fold into accordion card.
