The Paper Craft Crew sketch for this week inspired me to add a foiling detail to my card.
I’ve had foil in my stash for a couple of years and haven’t played with it in a while. I decided to keep it simple and use it on my card for today!
I aspire to make clean and simple cards and I think I did that today!
Adding that sparkly orange foil was so simple. I used double sided tape and placed the foil on tip. I ran it through my laminator and pulled off the excess foil to reveal a beautifully foiled stripe of orange sparkle! So simple!!
I love this Pretty in Peony stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs. I really enjoyed watercoloring it a couple of weeks ago on a mixed media project. Today, I colored it in with Copic Markers:
Copic Color Combination:
Flower: E09, R8, 5, 2 W5
Card Base: Craft Card Stock cut at 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″
Card Front: 4 x 5-1/4″
Stamp Set: Pretty in Peony from The Rabbit Hole Designs
Inks: Garden Party from Catherine Pooler, Extreme Black from MFT Stamps
Dies: Leaf Canopy from Altenew, Stitched Rectangles from MFT Stamps
Other: Neat & Tangled Festive Fall Sequin mix, Gina K Fancy Foils, 1/4″ Double Sided adhesive tape
I chose my colors today from the MFT Stamps Color Challenge:
I don’t actually have the MFT inks in these colors. I have a few of the inks, but not these. I attempted to match them with things in my stash just for the fun of playing along with the challenge. It’s fun to try a combination you wouldn’t have put together yourself!
Here is a video that I created to show you how to add the foil:
