I have been trying out some new to me techniques the last couple of days and I confess I am now hooked............... on.................. foiling! I am sat here now waiting for some new stash 😊😊 after buying some teeny samples to see if I could master/like using foil.
I have a laminator (very old but works!) and I have also made some cards using that too and been happy with the results for first attempts.
This share is a card made without having to use a laminator!
I am dead chuffed with how this turned out (although those of a nervous disposition should not have been in the room when I was trying to take the photograph!)
Red Pepper and Lettuce Alcohol Inks onto a scrap of Yupo and just let them mingle together.
Allowed to dry for a short time then laid over a small piece of gold foil and rubbed with my finger. Where the 2 colours meet and leave a marked 'join' the foil simply sticks to whilst it is tacky!
My trees were done by using double sided tape on another odd piece of card and putting the foil over. Rubbed lightly with a bone folder and then die cut.
Here's a close up - I L💗VE it!!
Stamped a greeting in Metallic Gold Ink, die cut an oval frame and done!
CAS Mix Up's challenge this month is Foiling so am linking up to the gallery before the challenge closes in a couple of days.
Allsorts challenge is Add something gold/silver
It's dry here but a little overcast today.
I am off for some fresh air and a little walk round out local dam and then intend to foil, foil and foil some more!!
Have a great day whatever you're doing! x
