Metal leaf card

Metal leaf card

I had lots of golden and silver leaves left in my home and as soon as I heard of heavy metal challenge in Simon Says Stamp, I knew I can use them for the challenge.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This card is an experiment with all the materials I had. I actually glued the large silver leaves like star fish and found there were many space left in the card. So, I randomly applied versamark watermark ink and embossing powder and heat set them. As I applied heat after gluing the leaves, the silver leaves started melting and it started shrinking, thank God it gave a cool 3D effect but a lesson for me, I must do the background first then add the embellishments later.

I later added the golden leaves on the gaps.

Here is my experiment card with silver and gold leaves.
