Gilding Flakes and Sea Glass

Hi Everyone…

A thought popped into my head tonight……..!

I wonder if I can apply Megaflakes to seaglass?

One way to find out….. and off to my shed I trot!

I have to say…I loved the effect :)

I picked a nice piece of light aqua glass and applied some around the edges, then took the snowflake lace stamp from Indigoblu and stamped over top and applied more winter dawn flakes.. it’s so pretty <3

Then I picked clear and green seaglass and applied the Morris dance megaflake… it’s really pretty too :-)
