I'm busy today making some designs for Penny Black Inc. Shaida had asked me to become a designer for them and it's taken a while to clear my slate but now have a few designs made up ready for my introduction. I'm trying out a bit of gold leaf to highlight cards today. I got so inspired I even made a card for my sister-in-law for her birthday.
It's a quick technique - just draw lines and details with a quickie glue pen where you want the gold leaf to go then allow to dry till tacky (it'll change from blue to clear) Lay on the gold leaf and after a few minutes. dab with a stiff brush and sweep away the excess.
