Wow I haven't posted since June where has the time gone. I am now into Christmas card mode and will share a few I have finished. My latest obsession at the moment is foiling. I use a GoPress and Foil machine and a laminator. This first card I foiled using the GoPress and an embossing folder.
The next one I stamped my image and then scanned it so I could print it on a Laser printer. The toner of the Laser printer is necessary for foiling with a laminator.
There are loads of You Tube videos on how to foil so I won't bore you with the details. Most of the projects I have done is from watching and learning from these videos.
Wedding season is happening. I have made 3 wedding cards for friends. My favourite wedding image is "Wedding Couple" by Stamps by AurorwaWings. I have printed the images onto vellum and coloured them with Polychromos pencils. The dies I have used are from Spellbinders. Roses are made from CheeryLyn dies .
I must thank Jennifer McGuire for showing this technique.
I have used Altenew's Peony Bouquet stamp set. I stamped the detailed layer with VersaMark onto Blue cardstock and then dusted some Perfect Pearls powder over the image. I then used the VersaMark ink to stamp the next layer which then takes away some of the powder and leaves an almost ghost shadow. To complete the stamping I used a dark blue ink to stamp the final layer. I repeated this process with the leaves and must say for a first time try it came out really well.
