Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!
Today I’m taking part in the Spellbinders Decorative Glimmer Blog Hop + Giveaway to shower you with ideas to use the latest Glimmer hot foil plates available.
The Flowers Pattern Glimmer Hot Foil Plate will easily allow you to foil a whole background panel.
I made two cards to show you the foiled image produced by this plate.
Next, I applied colours with Copics Markers.
The foil resists the markers ink and it is not affected at all if you pass a marker over it. This doesn’t damage your marker neither so that colouring a foiled image is easy.
I repeated the process but I was curious about foil/cardstock combos.
You can see how the orange hot foil looks on a non- neutral cardstock colour below…
I love this look an feel. The foil shines through the coloured images … just stunning in real life.
To foil the sentiment for this card, I also used Fuchsia Flower Glimmer Hot Foil.
I applied colours using Faber Castel Polichromos coloured pencils.
I tried to be light handed when applying the media over the foil to avoid scratching it. Apart from that, there is no other thing to bear in mind when using coloured pencils on a foiled image. However, I didn’t add any blending solution so I haven’t tested the foil using it. It is something I might do the next time.
To finish up both cards, I also added black and white dots and lines over the florals using white and black fine tip markers.
I added sequins and a few Nuvo Dream Drops.
