Fab Foils Over Ink Blending with Jenny Colacicco

Hi Everyone!

It's Jenny here, and today I'm joining you with a simple but pretty card that uses WOW!'s Fab Foils.  You can get a gorgeous effect by overlaying foils on ink blended backgrounds. I've been having so much fun recently (and chilling out) by making new ink blended combo backgrounds - just doing lots of blending.  I used one of those backgrounds for my card today.  I do apologise but I don't have a video this time, but watch this space for some more Fab Foil action in a forthcoming vid!



To create my ink-blended background I used Altenew inks and the following combo: Baby Pink, Butternut, Dew Drops and Eastern Sky.  The way they overlap and create new colors is gorgeous, and it creates a beautiful rainbow.   I used thicker cardstock, and when finished I spritzed the background with shimmer spray to give a shimmery look.

For my foiling medium, I like to have dimension, so I used Decofoil thermel gel which you can apply with a palette knife and then once it is dry, it turns clear.  If you don't wait, it will squish a bit in your laminator when you foil it so be warned (you can see where it did that on my card a little,  but it's ok, it's handmade!).


I used this supercute Floral Wallpaper stencil from Altenew and smoothed over the gel. When it was dry, I covered it with two strips of WOW! Fab Foil in gold and then ran it through my Minc machine but you can also use a laminator.  Doesn't that gold look amazing against the rainbow background!

Because of the WOW! factor of that background, I kept the rest of the card clean and simple.  I used the Fancy For You die by Altenew, die cut three times from white cardstock and adhered together. I adhered it to the background with a vellum frame mat (Nested Frame by Altenew) and then hid foam adhesive behind the letters to give some dimension.



I highly recommend you give this a go!

Jenny
