Foiled Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!  I tried something really cool with this card and am so excited to share it with you! The picture didn’t come out great but the picture still shows the details.



Doesn’t that look so cool! I swear the middle is not that dark I have a feeling that my camera struggled with the difference of the white words and the dark background.

Anyway how did I do this. First I blended Black Soot Disstress Ink all over the foiled piece (It used to be white) then ran it through my minc with the red foil and embossed the happy birthday with some white embossing powder. It’s a little sumdgy because I forgot to run my powder tool over the pannel first… I always forget that part! But here’s something intresting! In some parts of the pannel the foil actually stuck to the black ink too! I wonder if I should have let it dry a little more before I ran it through my minc.

Watercolor Wedding

July is National Watercolor Month! So here’s a fun watercolor wedding card! I cut the wedding cake from one of the pre-loaded images on the Scan-N-Cut! I used some of the inking techniques I learned from my foiling class! I also learned I have no wedding greeting stamps… Do you have any suggestions?
