Vellum Card and Liquitex Gold Ink

Tried out a new (to me) product -- Liquidex Bright Gold Iridescent Ink. It is very fluid -- much thinner than paint. You can mix it with acrylic paint or just play around with it as I did.  It comes in a bottle with an eyedropper. Paid about $5 for it at a local art store. You can also find it online at a variety of places should you feel the need to buy one.more.thing.

Used the eyedropper to flick gold spots over the white layer, which I had stamped with Bokeh Dots and Hello Gorgeous, both from the Essentials by Ellen stamp line, designed by Julie Ebersole.  It dries within a few minutes. I was just goofing around to see what would happen and I ended up liking it enough to use it on this card.

Die cut 3 more white layers so that the layers on the top of the card and the inside right of the card are backed up on the other side and the adhesive is hidden.

A new Online Card Class starts tomorrow and it is on "Clear and Sheer," a topic that intrigues me. I'm taking it and hope to learn some new uses for vellum and other clear products.

MOOD WHEN DONE = On the fence about this product.  Is it a must have? No.  But it was fun to experiment.  And fun is good.


  1. oooohhh...I love all things gold and this is awesome.

  2. Oh, my. The vellum card base idea is simply wonderful! I'm thinking I might have a few pieces of vellum that are thick enough for that. And the gold ink is gorgeous!

  3. Loving the vellum idea and the pops of color are awesome!

  4. Fun! That's a product I don't have! LOL I'm glad you enjoyed playing with it, and I LOVE the vellum card base. Vellum rocks!!!

  5. That's a pretty card! Where are you finding your card class for tomorrow?

    1. Hi Kathy, www.onlinecardclasses.com is offering a clear and sheer class that starts today.

  6. It certainly does have a gold iridescent look to it. The vellum as a card base is a cool idea.

  7. Love this! Simple yet so very effective!

  8. The gold is beautiful, love this!!
