Using Metal Leaf Glue on a Stencil

The first of the samples that I made for the Clarity mixed media one day special on Hochanda.  You can see more shows at 9am, 1pm and 5pm today, if they don't sell out first lol.  I decided to try using metal leaf glue ON a stencil, rather than through a stencil.  As you can see, if careful, it turns out well.
Attach the harlequin stencil and the outer part of the deckle framer stencil to a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card using masking tape to create a hinge at the top.
Brush Cotton Candy Artistry ink through the top and bottom sections of the stencils using a stencil brush. Add Orange Popsicle Artistry ink through the middle.
Using the harlequin stamp from the journaling stamp set held in the hand, add stamping in Cotton Candy and Orange Popsicle through the stencil.
Pounce Pentart metal leaf glue onto the underside of the stencil and run it through an embossing machine to transfer the glue onto the stencil card (carefully remove the stencil immediately). Add Pentart variegated copper metal flakes to the glue and burnish.
Fussy cut the card to the edge of the deckle embossed area.
Mat onto a piece of black card 5.75” x 5.75”, using a corner rounding punch. Add one of Barbara’s sentiment stickers.
Stamp directly onto the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank in Cotton Candy and Orange Popsicle ink using the same harlequin stamp as before, this time on a Clarity mount.
To finish, add the topper to the card.

Neat idea. I love the harlequin stamp so reckon I might need the die or stencil. Enjoy your Preston class, the project is great. X.
