MIX Challenge Card

I made the background a while back, I kinda forgot what products were used.    I will tell you what I think I used. :) I sponged on distress inks and added a gold spray on top if it. The MIX challenge for today was to do faux gold leaf technique.

Here are the steps to the Gold Leaf technique.   I took Aluminum foil and wadded it up.  Next I smeared Versmark over it.  I sprinkled Gold Embossing Powder over it and heated it with a heat gun.
I cut the aluminum foil and trimmed it to fit behind the mosaic heart 

Thanks for taking a look at my card. I hope I have inspired you to do this technique.
