Today Deborah March has brought us a FUN sketch to use for our Father’s Day themed cards.
The background that I chose for my card today is such a versatile stencil, it can be used for any occasion.
I started with LJ849, Bare Trees and a piece of gold aluminum. I embossed the aluminum in a die cutting machine, using the same method that is used when embossing paper. Once embossed, I simply sanded the raised top .
The Gold Leafing technique is so fun with such fabulous results. I pasted embossed LM 2003, Fishing Fly with Gold Embossing Paste. Once dry, I replaced the stencil over the dry paste and applied Palette Glue Pad to the entire surface. Using my heat tool, I applied heat to the glue until it became tacky enough to stick to my finger. I then placed gold leafing over the surface and whisked away all the precious gold pieces.
Here is the sketch by Deborah…
