Technique Tuesday -- Gold Leaf Acetate

Welcome back to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday! Today I want to show you an easy technique.  I used the Zebraon my card, but this technique would also be great for all those Fall cards you are making.

Supplies needed:
  1. acetate sheet
  2. double sided sticky tape sheet or Xyron machine
  3. gold leaf pieces
  4. stipple brush
  5. black permanent ink pad
  6. stamp
I ran my acetate through the Xyron machine.

Peel off paper and add gold leaf pieces to the sticky side of the acetate until it is covered. Press the pieces down with your fingers.

When it is covered, take the stipple brush to brush off and stray pieces.

Stamp image on the other side of the acetate with permanent black ink.

This is such an easy technique, but one that will wow! Have fun trying it! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!


Sparkle n Sprinkle supplies used:
  1. Zebra 1758-337N
