MC Dec/14 - Gold Leaf Thanks
Anyway I was in a mood to do a bit of gold leafing... it's been a while since I've done any and I sure could use a bit of practice. i tried this time using the Sticky embossing powder as the adhesive. Was OK but nothing to write home to mother about...
Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). Stamped the leaf borders with Versamark and embossed the top section with Rangers Sticky embossing powder and the bottom one with Stampendous "Stamp n Bond"). Although the Stampendous one let the leaf stick more, it was also more pebbly. So really neither was to my liking.
Stamped the "Thanks Fill 'r Up" with Versafine Toffee and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Used a Quickie glue pen on the "T" tails and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Gold". Cut a piece of gold marbled paper for the body of the "T. Shadow outlined the letters with a taupe colored pencil.
Used my hard rubber mallet to selectively emboss the corners using a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Heritage set). Sponged some Distress "Weathered Wood" around the edges.
I'm using Quietfire Design sentiment stamp
