Green Leaf Altered Slide Mailer

Here is another altered double slide mailer I have completed.

I gave the whole of the outside a coat of pale green acrylic paint and once dry gave the whole of the inside a coat of Lumiere metallic in Citrine. Once dry I stamped the front with an Intaglio stamp from Stewart Gill in Lime and Moss Green Chalk Ink. Using a very small leaf stamp I used Versamark and metallic emerald green Embossing Powder which I melted with a heat tool. The inside front was embellished with two self adhesive dye cut 3D roses. The slide holder frames were stamped with another small flower stamp in Olive Green Stazon. All the edges of the slide holder were then finished in dark metallic green marker as a contrast.

The slides were made from a single glass slide in each case which was stamped with leaf stamps and a trellis in Stazon in Olive Green and Black, on both sides. Care is needed to avoid slipping with the images on the glass. Once dry the slides were backed with a green backing paper applied to the slide with Glossy accents. The edges of the slides were then rubbed against the Versamark pad and dipped into fine detail Silver Embossing Powder before heating to melt with a heat tool. The backs were given a direct to paper coat of the lime green Chalk Ink. The finishing touch was to apply two black flat backed faceted gems to the front of the slide mailer.
