Gilded leafing is a popular technique this year and I just had to try playing with it!
This card has an embossed panel in the background and I chose to use the gilded leafing on that.
When you get these gold flakes, they come in a large jar. When you open that jar, be careful! The leafing is light and airy and can be puffed away by the smallest breath.
I turned off my fan and had a large plastic container ready before I opened mine. I also had a stiff paintbrush at the ready.
Once I embossed my cardstock, I brushed some Tombow glue across the raised ridges and set it aside to allow the glue to become tacky dry.
Then I carefully piled gold leaf on top of the glue. Once it had caught, I brushed the excess away with my stiff paintbrush.
It really is a pretty effect!
