Near The Sea



Today I have some glittery goodness for you!  This is a technique I really enjoy doing, it looks impressive but it isn't difficult.  It is an acetate, Sticky Panel, glitter, gold leaf technique and I don't think it has a name.
Here is what it looks like when photographed outside.

1. Stamp Gold Fish Pair on acetate with Black StazOn ink.
2. Apply a Sticky Panel to the back of the acetate and cut the acetate to the desired size.
3. Put the acetate panel face down on a light box and using a craft knife, cut the outline of both fish, remove the carrier from the fish only and apply gold leaf in a Mardigras color.  Burnish with a brillo pad type tool.
This is a picture of it face down on a light table and the Sticky Panel backing facing up ready to cut.
4. Remove the carrier from the rest of the acetate and lightly sprinkle with Gold Lux Mix then sprinkle with Teal Micro Glitter and rub with your finger or the back of a plastic spoon.
5. When all of the acetate is covered layer onto a cream and rust panel and mount to a card.
6. Stamp Near The Sea on cream paper with rust ink.  Apply a strip of Sticky Panel to each end, sprinkle with Teal Micro Glitter and pop up on card using foam squares.

GORGEOUS ... and such an EXCITING technique too Jamie!!!
I have to confess that I haven't used sticky panels, gold leaf or gold lux, haven't used acetate sheets much either (except for a couple of shakers) => it is time for me to go shopping and try making some MAGICAL goldfish cards - THANK YOU for sharing :)
PS - I was thinking that with the acetate on top, it would look like the glass of an aquarium with the bonus of having the SPARKLE protected underneath - WIN WIN!!!
