First using VersaColor Ombre ink in Mocha Truffle I stamped Indigoblu "Juliet" onto a lovely heavyweight paper by DCWV (Once upon a Time).
I edged the card with flitter glue then gilded it with Indigoblu megaflake in Royal Peacock. The Royal Peacock is a lovely blend of silver, bronze and gold with a hint of blue.
I then die cut lots of different size leaves with my handy new Sapphire and Ivy dies by Spellbinder.
These dies also embossed the veins on the leaves, which when buffed with Buff-it really adds depth and interest. I added some darker green on top in places with inks.
I then gilded some paper with the megaflake and die cut some leaves with this too. The die-cutting process seemed to add extra shine to the megaflake, and the leaves look almost as if crafted from metal.
Using Pinflair 3D glue I adhered the leaves to the card in a flowing pattern, as if they were tumbing from Juliet's hair. The 3D glue gives a quick and easy raised effect, but small foam pads would also work well.
