Fun Fall Foiled Leaves-- "A Blog Named Hero's" November Glitz Challenge Inspiration!
October flew by! I know you don't normally think of November as glitzy, but I like to be a bit different:)
The "A Blog Named Hero" challenge this month is "Glitzy." Be sure to enter your projects that uses Hero Arts products at @abnhnovemberchallenge and tag @ablognamedhero by November 26th! The team will choose a winner for the $50 Hero Arts gift card and then there will be a drawing from the rest of the entries for a $25 gift card!

Ithought it would be fun to try Cosmic Shimmer foil flakes. They are gorgeous, however one has to be careful to contain them (and definitely turn off fans, possibly stop breathing LOL!)
I used a fairly heavy cardstock and applied a double sided adhesive panel. I laid it in a cardboard box, then carefully pulled off the release paper a bit a time and added flakes, burnishing at first with fingers.
Next, I laid the release paper back on top and burnished with a bone folder. Finally, just ran it through my diecutter to get the pieces (saving extra bits for later. I hate waste!) The supplies are all linked below (AFIL-thank you!)
After that it was just simple layering of the panels on top of a Z-fold copper base. A Z-fold is simply an A2 base, with the front folded on back to itself.

Here are the supplies I used:
