Foil technique used on cards and books.

A few months ago I was introduced to something called foil technique. I am a big fan of things being different and having texture.

You find something you want to cover - maybe a a notepad or a card. It makes great scrapbook pages.
PVA the surface, crumple up the tin foil (use extra thick).
Stretch foil over glued surface and flatten carefully.

You can use different shapes on book/card surface to give it some extra interest. Just be a little gentle easing tin foil over glued surface.
Allow to dry.
You can keep it as it is or cover it in paint, enamel, varnish etc.

The notepad below was covered in tin foil then topped in blue and white in different areas. I allowed paint to dry to a tacky feel and used a soft cloth to remove some of the paint, to expose tin foil and make different shades of colour.

The card below is covered in a rustic colour enamel to dull the shine of the tin foil.

Stencil and acrylic paints.

I have been quite productive crafting as I have not been well enough to do much else.

Here is another first for me and I am very happy with the effect.
I used a brass stencil a dry push and a tiny amount of paint.

One of them I filled in a little with water colours.

Meet my new Stamp

As you have seen from a previous post I am enjoying stamping and painting images for cards.
Here is my new stamp - and I think she is so cute!
The image has been used for various occasions.

I am paying a lot of attention to the insert these days and making it just as pretty.

I do hope you liked her, I know she is just adorable.
