|Reverse Foiling on Black|
It is a play on words because this process was a challenge to get
Once I did, it was easy! Come along as I share the process.
Stamping and Preparation to Foil
First I needed to stamp in a circle. There was a perfect stamp in the kit. I started by trimming the rubber very close to the impression area. Carefully removed all the excess rubber around the stamp ( I needed it to bend). Applied a layer of mounting glue. I used the mounting glue from Club Scrap. Amazing hold. The holding power allowed me to curve the stamp and it stayed through several hours of "playing".

I used a template to determine the size of circle I would need and how many times to stamp the image. There is a great video and downloadable templates on Maureen Wong's site: http://mycasestudies.blogspot.com/2015/02/misti-templates.html
|After completing the stamping, gaps remain.|
|Filled in gaps with .3 black Multi-liner Marker|
|Colored with Copics: RV 66 and YG 23 were used to color the knot. Layered onto green and plum card stock. Stamped area was blended with Distress Ink: Twisted Citron. I used a Circle dies to cut the circles.|
Evaluation and started again
|Printed on a laser printer. Also printed a toner sheet.|
A file for the toner sheet is available at Jennifer Mcquire's site: http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/images/2015/04/Toner-Paper.pdfFoil Time
Foil TimeI wanted the image to be gold foil with black knots. I needed the reverse of my printed sheet. So, I started with the printed image and using a laminator or the Minc, whichever you have, ran the printed image image through the machine with gold foil. Carefully removed the foil. Now I have a gold knot on white paper.
|First run: white with gold. Note foil in foreground with missing foil in knot area.|
|Negative foil laying over black toner sheet.|
|Using the foil that was missing in the "knot area" I placed it on the toner-paper sheet. This was cut down to just a little smaller than the foil. Ran this through the laminator again, and viola!! Black knots on a gold background.|
Creating the cards:
Both cards were prepped similarly. Choosing a circle die slightly bigger than the outside of the knots, both were die cut. For the white card, I also cut out the center.
Card one: White with Gold foil, Shaker Card
| For the white one, I cut out the center using a circle die.|
|I cut fun foam to cover the outer circle using slightly smaller/bigger dies, layering a piece of acetate between them. The foam foam was covered with scor-tape|
The Center Piece was sprayed with Heidi Swap Gold spray. I used this as it leaves blobs of gold rather than a fine mist. I wanted the drops. (Not sure if this is a property of the product or delivery failure, but when I want "drops and blobs" I use this spray. May need to buy a new one and see if it works the same!!) You could get the same results by taking off the lid and flicking the paint onto the card. After dry, I stamped the sentiment and then glued it onto the front of a 5x5 square card. Sequins and other glitter was placed in the center of the center circle and the "ring" fitted over the center creating a shaker card.
Black card and Gold:This was actually the easiest of the two. I love shaker cards but they do take awhile to get everything lined up and put together.
