The CAS Stencil challenge this month is to use foil
To be honest I'd decided to give this one a miss - I didn't have a laminator and really didn't want to spray my stencils with the adhesive I have, even though I know some of you have had fabulous results. The thing is I really do like the look of foiling....
Well as it happened, some of my GF's gave me money for my birthday last month so I thought what the heck! I bought an inexpensive laminator (£15) together with Deco paste and using a little heart stencil, I made an anniversary card for friends of ours
Oh my..... It's like when you use embossing powder for the first time... Magic! But more shiny
I cut leaf stems from AI pieces added two vellum banners which I'd stamped and clear embossed, plus a little fussy cut butterfly recycled from a shop bought birthday card- He blends perfectly
I have to say I'm really happy with the result and my new toy.
Thanks for popping in and have a great day!
