I had lots of fun coloring the Leaves with Pan Pastel colors and finishing with the Metallic Rich Gold. Oh my goodness. The pictures does not do these leaves justice. If you love gold but in a more subdued appearance then you will definitely want to try out the rich gold.
I added gold glimmer to the leaves by applying a light coat of gold pastel and then formed the leaves using my stylus and molding pad. I attached the ;eaves to the card base with glossy accents. Here are a couple closer views to show the faint gold glimmer on the leaves. They are so much more beautiful in person that shows in the photos.
You can click on the photos to see a larger view.
The gold layer behind the leaves and small banner tails were colored with the rich gold pastel to create the perfect match for the leaves.
