Autumn Card with Metal Leaf Flakes

Despite the fineness of these stamps' line art, they work perfectly stamped in metal leaf glue and covered with metal flakes.
Add metal leaf glue to the large Autumn and winter mandala ring stamp with a foam dauber, stamp directly onto the front of a 5” x 5” black card blank. Add Variegated Copper metal flakes and remove the excess.
Add Autumn inside the ring in the same way.
Use the 2” nested circle die to cut a topper from a second 5” x 5” black card blank. Add the autumn image to it in the same way as before.
Add the smaller mandala ring into the larger one in the same manner.
To finish, add the autumn scene topper with foam pads.
It is important to put your stamps straight into water once used until they can be washed properly in warm, soapy water to get rid of the glue.

Thank you for the clear instructions. I have not used the metal leaf glue. Could another glue be used?
