Puddle Play with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Foils. I’ve used some Bright Silver Fab Foil to add accents to my scene.

I began by creating a background using distress oxides and blending brushes. I inked the brushes first then tapped them lightly in water. I used swiping motions to add colour to the panel which gives a lovely rain like effect. I added some pink and yellow inks amongst the blues for some extra colour.

Once the panel was dry, I took the puddle and rain stamps from Hello Bluebird Rainy Day stamp set. I stamped images with WOW embossing ink, then heat them with WOW Bonding Powder. I added the silver foil sheet over the top, pretty side up, allowed it to cool, then removed it to reveal the pretty foil details. I did this process in stages so I only needed to work with a small area at a time, slowly building up the background scene.

I stamped and copic coloured some images from the Hello Bluebird Puddle Play stamp set. I added the panel to a white card base, then the critters on top with foam tape. To finish, I stamped a greeting from the same stamp set.

The foil looks so pretty, especially when it catches the light. I hope you’ll feel inspired to try adding foil accents to your projects.

Have a lovely day,
