Playing with Foiling to join in the PaperArtsy's challenge this fortnight......
The theme is 'Foiling'
This is my card......
The leaf is a real one from my garden, which I have stuck down,
vein side up onto a texture piece of card.
When it was fully dried I stuck a piece of silver foil on top
and painted a light coating of black acrylic paint, cover the whole piece of card.
When this was dry I rubbed it back carefully to expose the leaf
and it's veins and some of the textured board and the silver foil.
I have edged the topper and card with a silver chrome pen.
The 'Fabulous' sentiment has been layered many times, with different colours
of embossing powders and frantage, using my trusty pancake maker as the heat source.
Using what was left and a toothpick to move the molten powders around I made a vertical shape for the left hand side of the card, which I thought looked like a very withered tree trunk.
The silver tree ring has been stamped and heat embossed, keeping the tree theme going...
I missed the tissue theme at PaperArtsy and entering the challenge, so I have used it on the top .....
I also used the die cut frame for my last post.....to make a CAS Christmas card
I also tried foiling onto embossing paste and onto alcohol inks, again inspired by the blog posts.
I really had fun and enjoyed the theme this fortnight....
The PaperArtsy blog has wonderful and very creative ways to use foil and
the blog posts have been fabulously inspirational and I have learnt lots...Thank you x
Challenges I would like to enter....
