ATCAS #23



Hi everybody, it's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. Our code word is Autumn/Fall selected by the lovely Sylvia who will be our hostess for the next fortnight.
Our generous sponsor is Paper Nest Dolls who will be offering a generous prize to our CAS Perfectionist. 


Here's how I made my autumn leaves:

1. Take a piece of double-sided sticky sheet. Peel the backing off of one side, stamp your image onto the sheet with black Archival and then place a piece of clear acetate sheet over the top.

2. Trim roughly around the image, turn the piece over and peel off the backing on the second side.

3. Apply mica powders/glitter to that side of the sticky sheet, cut out your image and attach to your project.

Leaf stamp by Me and Carrie Lou, word stamp by Inkylicious, mica powders by Pearl-Ex. The sheen and sparkle on the mica doesn't show up at all well on the photos.

TIP: clear/mother of pearl sequins can be coloured with Promarkers or other alcohol pens to match your project. 

This card is also for CASology and CAS-ual Fridays.


Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspiration by the other talented DT ladies at Addicted to CAS. We look forward to seeing your beautiful creations and visiting your blogs.

Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for taking the time to stop by today!

I LOVE this technique Sue. I am also going to try this by using just using clear glitter and then colouring in the image with my Spectrums. I've seen a great tutorial over on their site. I love the shimmery colours you have achieved for these beautiful leaves. xx
