The new technique (to me) that I used was gilding flakes. I bought some at a craft show a couple of years ago and have never used them. Unfortunately they were the wrong colour for this layout but I found some at a local $2 shop that were silver so decided to give them a go.
I used the A2Z Scraplets Meow title. When I bought my original gilding flakes I also bought some special flake and glitter glue. I think you just need glue that stays tacky for a while. I covered my chipboard in glue and then covered it with the flakes. I patted them down and then used a firm foam pad to brush the excess flakes off.
