Metal Leaf over a Die Cut Aperture


I've been using metal flakes quite a bit recently.  I decided to see how they would look with a Clarity aperture die.  The Town die is one of my favourites so I went with that one.
Attach the harlequin stencil to a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card using masking tape to create a hinge at the top. Brush Tenacious Teal artistry ink through the apertures using a Clarity stencil brush.
With the stencil still in place, lay the square inner from the framer stencil set in the centre of the card and brush Green Garland Artistry around the four sides.
Use a square die to cut out the centre part of the card.
Lay the stencil back in place over the frame and stamp the harlequin stamp through it three times in Tenacious Teal ink.
Add stamping in both Tenacious Teal and Green Garland to the square inner.
Lay the frame over a second piece of stencil card. Line up the Town aperture die in the centre, remove the frame and run through a die cutting machine.
Pounce Pentart metal leaf glue to the die cut area, add variegated copper metal flakes and carefully burnish.
Glue the frame layer over the aperture layer ensuring that the centres line up. Trim the panel back to 6.5” x 6.5”.
Glue the square panel behind the aperture ensuring that the stencilling lines up with the frame.
Add to a 7” x 7” black card blank. To finish, add a couple of Barbara’s sentiment stickers.
