CASology Week #14 : LEAF
The theme for the challenge this week is LEAF so this gave me the opportunity to try out a technique I saw on TV this morning using gilding flakes and double sided adhesive. The leaf is stamped directly onto the sticky adhesive in black archival ink, cover with a piece of acetate, remove the backing of the adhesive and apply the gliding flakes with a pair of tweezers. The trick is to then put it onto another piece of double sided adhesive and cut out the image, peel off the backing paper and it is ready to mount on the card.
I stamped the same leaf image using colorbox fluid chalks directly onto the white card and then added the gilded leaf. The sentiment is a copper peel off sticker and to match the black outline of the leaf I added a thin black line with a black micron pen.
I'm quite pleased with the result, I may try this again.
