FOIL EMBOSSING

This is for todays Technique Challenge over at Splitcoast...to use foil in our embossing folders.

I chose to use the distressed stripes folder to create a more masculine theme. I used new a new stamp for September from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS called 1965 Mustang.

I stamped the mustang onto shimmery white cardstock and coloured it in with inks and my blender pen. It is cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I added some silver brads in the corners. I left off the sentiment and will add it later when I have a need for a masculine card.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps~1965 Mustang
Paper: Black, Pacific Point, Shimmery white, Foil
Ink: Real Red, Black Staz-on, Basic Grey
Accessories: Distressed Stripes embossing folder, Foil, blender pen, dimensionals, silver brads

Thanks for looking.

Beautifully done Gloria. When I saw this technique today I was sad I have not bought the new CB folder that looks like the CDS heavy metal set. You know the one I mean?!
