Back from CHA

Hi everyone.

I had a great time in the States and met some lovely people at CHA. I enjoyed my time showing Dreamweaver Dream Team designers, reps and store owners my latest foil techniques with stencils.
Here are a few more cards using these techniques with the new Rooster stencil LG732.

The first two cards were done on a base of Jac paper.
I used small amounts of different coloured foils on the first design
before filling it in with black flock. Notice one short edge of the Jac was punched first.
I only ever use opal glitter on the background after the stencil is removed as other colours muddy the image and can even make your image disappear into the background.

This card was done exactly the same as the last one only I used only
one colour of foil. In this instance it is the Copper foil.

 This card is done differently. I dry embossed the image and then coloured it with pigment inks. I removed the stencil and covered the image with 'Stuck on You' powder from Stampee. The powder was then melted with a heat gun. Transluscent foil in the Water pattern was placed over the image and run through a heated pouch laminating machine (without the pouch) between 2 pieces of copy paper. The foil was then removed quickly after it had cooled.
I then dry embossed around the outside of the rooster to add extra dimension.

This was done exactly the same as the previous card only I used different coloured inks. Instead of dry embossing the background I sprayed the card with Blue Hawaiian Memories Mist. The foil acts as a resist so you can wipe the image down and not affect the image.

This card was done the same way as the last two only Silver Bubbles foil was used on black card. You don't have to colour the image first if using a solid colour foil so I used the Palette brand glue pad but you can use Versamark. Note: you do have to dry emboss though.

More to come in the following days using the newest Dreamweaver stencils.
Have a great day,

  1. Great to show different versions of the Rooster, Julie. I think I like the "copper-look" of card #2 the best but then you know me ... I love brown paper! :-) Donna
