Fun with foils

Hi there,
Nikki again.
This time I have been playing with the WOW range of foils and a mini card (I really am enjoying making lots of mini cards at the moment).....
 The background was created using some double sided tape. - Place the double sided tape on the card, peel of the paper and add the foils.The detail in the corner (the 3 little red dots), is done the same way - only this time I used foam dots.
 To create the cameo, I stamped the image using clear ink and bonding powder.
When the bonding powder was heat set I added the foil and then reheated the area with a heat gun.
When you take off the foil sheet the image will be foiled.
It's a fun technique and the foils add that element of luxury to your cards.
Give it a go and let us know how you get on.

You will find the items that I used over on the WOW website here...

The shopping list is

  1. Nikki, what a fab idea to use just foils for you project. I always used them with embossing powders ore colours but this looks great too. I have to give it a go!
