My last post for the blog hop explored many foiling techniques and I mentioned there was one I needed to play with more before sharing. Well I did and I would like to share those final techniques in this post. There are many more things that can be done with foiling, but I am focusing on general techniques and then we can explore in future post how to incorporate these into your projects. Lets start with a photo or two.
Lets us look at what we need first:
butterfly-confetti, Tim Holtz, paper-cut-bird- but any die will work with the technique, even single dies as we will see later.
Need a sheet of 2 sided adhesive; Here is what I learned about this. The first time I tried this, I did not have any sheets, just tape. So I covered my paper with the wide taper. But the line show. I left it on my desk and worked around it, and the longer it sat and was moved or covered by "things" the more obvious the line became. So I bought the sheets and repeated with stellar success.
The third and most important part is the backing sheet from "something". I used the backing from a magnet sheet for my first try, then I moved to just using the backing from the sheet of double sided tape. All that is left is glitter, foil and imagination.
I started out by die cutting the backing sheet.
Carefully remove the mask. This is the hardest part, just be patient and if you don't rip it, you can reuse.
OK, for the first example I started with the bird.
Lets look at the rest:
All that was left was to make the cards.
All were matted with a gold paper that matched the butterfly tags in this month's Club Scrap Kit, Vintage Botany. The butterfly cards were placed on A2 card bases. The bird was matted in addition to the gold with the purple paper from this months kits and then onto a white card base. Ribbon also came from Vintage Botany.
