Foiled again!!

Hi All

It's The Crafting Owl here with another bit of inspiration for all you lovely peeps, this time with the new fab foils here at WOW!

At the mo I'm really into making jumbo tags. I cut them out using my die-cutting machine and then decorate them. Here I've inked a background, flicked water over it and then before the water dries, rolled a kitchen towel roll over to 'blot' the water off. This is one of my fav techniques at the mo and I'm using it quite alot.

Then I got a stencil and dabbed over it with embossing ink, removed the stencil, applied WOW! Bonding powder, heated and then quickly put the foils on top. I used pink and green for this one. This technique gives a much more distressed look and I have to say it's my favourite way of using then at the mo. The stamp is from the 'Is it a bird' set.

Here's a closer look...

And for a much simpler look I used the 'Make a Wish' set, with the pink foil.
