whatcha ya doing Wednesdays

Supplies :

Stamp and Stick glue pad
Rubber stamp of your choice
Gold or copper leafing
Heat tool
Hard bristle paint brush

Ink up your stamp with glue (stamp and stick glue ) Like below
You are then going to heat the image untill its tacky feel it but be careful that you do not burn your fingers .

Once its tacky you are going to take a sheet but again be careful it rips and makes a bit of a mess. Apply it to the image and press in a circular motion .

In figure A. You will see the image start to appear and the Access gold leafing will come off like below Figure B .
There will be places where you notice that the leafing will not stick and that just means that you dried the glue to much . I did that several times tonight . If there are spots that are not showing the design take your stiff bristle brush and rub in a circular motion and that should help , you can also reheat . Try the brush first though...
This leafing technique is great for those special cards that you are not mass producing. Fig. C

It would be really great if I could download the pictures I took with my new camera but its not working .... Great and Reggie just went to bed grrrrrrrrrrrrr . Tomorrow they will be up I promise

So I figured it out ... lets see if it sticks in my brain

So you just used regular stick glue??? What about those glue stamp pads would that work too, or is stick glue better??
