LIM #10 OLC Sentiment

Thank you less is more http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2011/04/week-10-one-layer-challenge-sentiment.html for getting me to try this technique.  I was at a rubber stamping convention when I learned about heat & stick powder and gold foil.  I purchased the necessary items to play and they have been in my drawer for about 2 years now!  I stamped the sentiment with a glue pad by Tsukineko and sprinkled on Stamp and bond embossing powder by stampendous.  I used my heat gun to melt the powder and make it sticky, then sprinkled assorted shades of gold foil over the sentiment and pounced and brushed over the image with a stencil brush to make the foil stick to the glue and taa-daa! pretty good for a first attempt.  Now maybe I'll play with it more...?
