Crowns with Gold Leaf

Hi Dreamers!
I have another project using Gold Leafing for the Blockheads Technique Challenge to share with you today.  The Technique I used on this card is: Solid Stamping using a glue pad.  

Materials list:
 Victorian Eccentricities and Japanese Musicians from Blockheads Paper Arts
Script stamp (retired Blockheads stamp)
Peach Bellini - Adirondack Ranger 
Dried Marigold Distress Ink -Ranger
Royal Satin Kaleidacolor Pad  - Tsukineko
La D'ore Gold Leaf
Tuxedo Black dye ink-Memento
The Essential Glue Pad- Tsukineko
Cardstock: Cream, Peach, Orange, light blue
Crafters Workshop Template - Mini Damask
Spray inks.

  • I started off with a background I made with a template and spray inks.  
  • "Ink" up the Border stamp with the Glue Pad.  
  • Stamp onto the background.  
  • Apply the gold leaf.  

  • Stamp the Script with Peach Bellini ink.
  • Stamp the Crown with the Kaleidacolor Pad favoring the green end.
  • Layer with peach and orange CS onto a light blue base.

I would like to enter my Golden Crown Card in the following Challenges:

Simon Says Stamp and Show: favorite ---My favorite is making backgrounds with templates and spray inks.  
Crafty Bloggers Network: anything goes
