Craft Queen - Viva Inka Gold and Croco Crackling

Hi LadiesI have a LO to share which I created to display at the recent Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo using more of the beautiful Prima Lyric range of papers and some yummy Craft Queen products, including some Viva Inka Gold pastes and Viva Croco Crackling.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
The background on this LO was created using some Viva croco crackling in white,  I then lightly rubbed some Viva Inka Gold - lava red on the edges of the croco crackling and used a wet ones to dab the colour outwards to create a watercolour effect, so the lava red softened out to a pinky-red colour.

I used the lava red paste with a Prima mask, and applied it to some acetate, and when dry, which only takes a few minutes, I cut around the design and layered the pieces under my flower cluster.  I also used the inka gold paste to colour the black and silver acrylic butterflies, by applying to my finger and lightly rubbing over the top.  Inka Gold pastes are fabulous for altering non porous embellishments like charms, acrylic, buttons, wood, chipboard etc, anything you can think of and it dries in minutes!!  LOVE this product check out the Craft Queen link HERE to see the colours Nicole has in store.
Craft Queen has silver and black and also some new silver and gold acrylic embellishments in store, which I have used here on my LO.  They come in attached in a piece and you just cut off what you need.
