Taj Mahal

This is my entry for the Clarity challenge for August BINGO. I have used gilding flakes, die and stamps.
I attached gilding flakes to a large double sided sticky sheet after applying to white card .
Cut out the frame from this gilded sheet using the Tonic Deco trellis die set.
Attached acetate to the back of this to complete the frame.
The edges of the card base were gilded as well using double sided sticky tape.
 I then used my clarity brushes to create the inked area using distress inks.
Low tack tape was used to mask of areas to stamp the journaling effect in the corresponding colours.
Finally stamping the Taj Mahal Clarity stamp in the centre in archival black and the sentiment at the bottom in the same colours as the inking.
The frame was then added.
Matted and layered on black and the pink card and mounted onto 8x8 card blank.
Loved doing this it really was a challenge.
