Foil Butterfly

Good morning all, hope your week is going well. 

I gave a different technique a go last week, heat foiling, and thought I would share my results with you!

I have had these foils for a while and was never sure what to do with them, but after watching Jennifer Mcguire's video's on foiling I thought I would give it a go. 

I have to admit it's not as easy as it looks, and Jennifer had much more success than I did. But I persevered and after many, many failed attempts. I finally did get something that was worth making into a card. 

I used Versamark ink to stamp with and then tried a few different embossing powders, but I had the most success with a fine detail powder. 

I still couldn't get rid of the foil sticking to the background card, even though I was using an anti-static bag. 

But in the end I decided I could live with that as I quite liked the effect it gave behind the butterfly and sentiment. 

For the backing card I used Coredinations card and a background stamp, which I stamped a few times to cover the sheet. 

Then after heat embossing I ran the foil through the laminator a few times and ended up with quite a pretty background sheet.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
