Golden Grid
Topic: Stencils

Oh, sometimes my brain just wanders off on its own and starts dreaming up all kinds of projects. Then it's up to me to go try them out and see if they work as imagined. Sometimes they do and sometimes not so much.

I had this idea to use a glue pad (like a stamp pad but it has glue in it) pressed through a stencil onto cardstock and then stick gold leafing on with it. CRAFT FAIL! The leafing did not stick well to the glue and this left spots of glue uncovered on the piece. Of course, the glue collected everything else and then it looked grungy. Tossed it out!

Nest idea was to apply the same glue in the same way and use it to adhere foiling. CRAFT FAIL! Unfortunately, the foil I had was designed to stick to laser printer toner when heated. I tried heating with the heat gun to release it and it worked to some extent but a lot of the glue was left uncovered as before. Tossed it out!

Is the third time the charm?  YES! But not exactly like I had planned it.

The plan was to press a gold pigment ink pad through the stencil and heat emboss with clear powder. The gold ink, though, had too dull a look for me. I wanted SHINY, so I used gold detail powder. Yes, it totally covered up the gold pigment ink, which was then redundant. 

In any case, there was success when I used this process on red cardstock with the Scrolled Background stencil from My Favorite Things.

 

I cut down the resulting panel and bordered it in black. Nothing I tried for the card base really worked until I hit on this shiny bright gold cardstock. It was perfect.

I found some black peel off stickers arranged them to create a text banner. A little 'valentine' sticker bordered in black finishes it off.


The small sticker is popped up on foam tape.
