While in Tulsa at the CKC show, Carrie Elmore and I watched a demonstration of Inka-Gold paints. They were using them to highlight the edges of cut out flowers. I fell in love with the way the flowers looked with the metallic paint added.
The booth had so many different stamps that co-ordinate with Nestabilities to cut them out, that it was hard for me to pick which ones I like the best. I picked up a couple of different flower stamps and the Inka-Gold's but it was not fun to walk away with only two sets of stamps, for sure!
Here are some photos of the flowers I did this afternoon to give the paints a try. I used a wet makeup wedge sponge to apply the metallic paint onto the cut out flowers.
Of these four, the ivory with the gold edges is my favorite. It has the most contrast on it so the gold shows up better. I used gold on one red flower and then I tried putting the red metallic paint on another one. The effect is really nice, but not what I was trying to achieve.
These Inka-Golds are going to be a great way to add shine onto a project. Once dried, it won't transfer off so I can use it for Cards for Soldiers cards with no worries.

I used a Pearl Pen to do the centers on all the flowers.
