*whew* My third VSN submission! It's been a really fun 3 hours!! I wish I could have started playing earlier in the day! For this final VSN challenge, the goal was to make the card be metallic in some sense, either the main image, or background. The recommendation was to use gold leaf! So, I dug out some foil leafing I had bought but never used, and gave it a try. I stamped the Petal Prints image in Encore gold, used heat & stick powder and rubbed the gold from the foil with my finger. The coverage isn't great - I think this would have worked better with the recommended "fashion flakes". But, I actually like the partial coverage I got - it's a very unique look! (how's that for spinning a poor job at gold leafing into a positive??) :-) Of course as always, it looks cooler in person than I could capture in the photo! TFL!
