Mixing it up...

Happy Monday,

Today I am helping;ping at a workshop for retailers for the Go Press foiling machine and the fantastic Izink range so I thought i would share this card that I recently workshopped at Mountain Ash crafts as it combines the two!



I used a combination of my acetate technique using the Izink pigment dropper inks and the foiling machine.  II used my gerbera lattice die to foil the heat resident acetate that I had coloured.

I used one of the Couture Creations hot foil stamps to foil the sentiment onto the coloured acetate cutting it out with my With Love tag die set.

I added a couple of layers of frames and, of course, some of the dragonflies cut in silver mirror card topped with the coloured acetate!


Enjoy...

  2. Morning John, gorgeous sample today, unfortunately I cannot afford the foiling machine so will have to just drawl at your creations with envy.

    Hope the day goes well, I am sure you will get swamped with crafters.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  21. Hello John,
    This is absolutely gorgeous. I have a "butterfly wing" necklace which is at least 70 years old and the colour of it matches your card exactly. Do I give you the necklace, or do you give me the card? ha ha.

    Absolutely beautiful card John. I love everything about it and if you put it up for auction I'm sure you would make enough money to buy another foiling machine lol
