Last night I got out the Yupo paper and a few newer bottles of ink I hadn't tried yet...I made a big mess, and had fun! For some reason, it was still tacky this morning. That was perfect for adding some foil highlights last night, but now I have tried the heat gun, and they still aren't really dry. The Yupo paper doesn't cut well with the dies either. But I managed to create some cards.
The large leaf on the left was cut from textured card stock with Simon Says Stamp Large Stitched Maple die. I placed the alcohol piece behind the opening, and adhered it all to a cream card.
I've seen many of these leaf cuts showing pattern in the cut out. They really are a beautiful way to showcase papers, homemade or not!
Cut one leaf out of the center...then popped it with some foam tape. The other two didn't cut through, so I hand trimmed around. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold. This was a design I saw on Pinterest, but apparently didn't save so I am not able to give proper credit for the inspiration.
