Carte a Jouer #17


Thème : Souhait - Desire
Technique : Foiling - Tin foil impression
The background of my card was embossed foil through my cuttlebug but that looked just like embossing and not the idea of the challenge. So I added a band of lace edge paper stamped with the sentiment and a coke can butterfly coloured with mica powders. For the tin foil impression down the left hand side I cut two layers of thick cardstock and punched them both with lace punch and stuck them together. I covered this with tin foil and pushed the tin into the holes of the cardstock which left their impression. Then I lifted off the foil and turned it over and highlighted the raised lace surface of the foil with rub-ons. I decorated a small tag with lace and a definition and attached it to the card with a brad.
