Foiled and Inked Backgrounds by Jaine

I don't know about you but during this month of foiling, I've certainly learned a lot! There are so many different ways to apply Fab Foils and so many different finishes to be created. I think for me, it's the abstract ways I can incorporate them into my backgrounds and the subtle finishes I can achieve which I find the most interesting.

These two cards came about after some experimenting with a few backgrounds already on my worktable. The watercolour/inky backgrounds were created on textured watercolour paper so I knew I wouldn't be able to get a nice perfect impression from a stamp.

The dandelion card came out better than I first thought it would but still the impression is less than even. I don't mind that at all and decided as an accent over the turquoise it would be so cool.

For the second card, I thought that seeing as I wasn't going to get an even impression on the textured card base, I would stamp the flowers background stamp, only randomly in parts. To make this even more random I didn't use an acrylic block to hold the stamp. I love the shiny foil over the watercolour background, it just adds a little pop of colour.

I stamped and die cut the butterfly onto a piece of vellum which also helps to create a little hint of the background underneath. 

I hope you've enjoyed foiling month.

Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there, these are for you.

  1. Two very pretty cards Jaine and the gold foil dandelion look fabulous against that pretty blue, and the touch of foil just in the background of the second goes perfectly. x
