For my first card I used Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Plant set with Panpastels.
I used the same leaf image on my next card for a totally different look.
First, I scribbled some Distress Markers onto an acrylic block, sprayed it with water and stamped it on watercolour paper to make a background for the leaf.
Then I applied some wet adhesive to the leaf stamp, stamped it onto the paper and covered it with gilding flakes (metal leafing).
Here's a closer look at the variegated colours from the gilding flakes.
I took alphabet letters from the Stamp & Cut Flag set to create my own sentiment and did some tone-on-tone stamping with the Tropical Background stamp on the card base.
The products I used for the gilded leaf can be found here and here. There are also a couple of videos on those pages to see how it's done.
That's it from me today. Your next stop on the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop is Marcy.
Thanks so much for hopping along with us today!
