My Wish For You

Happy Tuesday!  This is a card which was made for my younger sister's birthday which is coming up shortly.  I decided to play with Gold Leaf as she has some beautiful paintings she created using gold leaf which inspired me.

I ended up with a piece of art larger than a card because of this cool stencil from StencilGirl which I laid down and applied Wendy Vecchi translucent embossing paste.  After I applied it I waited for it to dry for a short time.


After it started drying and and laid gold leaf sheets over the paste and let it dry. Once dry I brushed off the excess gold leaf. I covered the paper with Ranger Distress Spray Peacock Feathers.  I then just added the beautiful sentiment from Verses Rubber Stamps.  I think she will enjoy the effect of the gold leaf on the stenciled paste. 

Thanks for stopping by!
