Thank you for your kind remarks! I'll try to explain the making of this card to you. (With my crappy english:) ) This card was by the way published in Norways largest and only (!) cardmaking magazine.:D
The bacground consists of two seperate papers. One coppertoned one on the left, and one brownish one on the right.
The left one is stamped with a text background stamp which is partly embossed and partly with goldleaf. It is stamped with Palette, which I use with goldleaf, and then while its heated and still hot, I brush on goldleaf and brush of the excess gold after it has cooled down.
The same procedure goes for the butterly which I used variegated goldleaf on.
The key, is an artmould key which i used both Adirondack, Black memories, pefect pearls and Lumiere on in a big huge mess to get it looking more real and distressed. (I'll just use what I have.. and mix it all together!:-D )
The metal piece on the left hand side is actually a brassmetal piece which I used metal-equipment on to press and mould it into a plastic mould I have. Afterwards I used both Adirondack and Lumiere on it to change the color from the bright brass to a more distressed brass-color. Its attached to the card with dobblesided gluetape.
Hope that this gives you an idea of how its done?:)
