Simple Foiling

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here and boy does it feel good to be here.  I had to take a couple days off for an family emergency.  Not being able to craft was hard.  I missed it a lot.  So being here today is awesome!!

I'm here today to share with you a new technique that I love a lot!!  What is it you ask?  It's called Foiling!!

So of you might have seen some cards with foiling on them and wonder how to do that.  I'm going to share how its done.

First lets take a look at what I created:

 OMG!!  That Fancy Butterfly and sentiment is absolutely stunning!! Both were created with the Rainbow Color Foil by Deco.

Here is how I created this tag:

1. I used WPlus9 Love Showers Layers Die to cut my gift tag out. 

Before I begin, let me tell what you need to work with foil. 

2. In order for the foil to stick to the paper, the image needs to be printed with toner.  So since, this image is a stamp, I had to convert it into an image that can be printed.

3. I stamped my Fancy Butterfly image on a piece of cardstock in black ink and scanned it onto my computer.

4. Then I printed the image out using my brother laser printer. 

5. After my image was printed, I trimmed it down and and cut a piece of that rainbow foil to the same size of my image.

6. I put the foil on top of my image with the color side up.  I put both pieces in my plastic sheet before putting it into my Anna Griffin Minc Machine.

7. Once my image came out of the Minc Machine I pulled the foil off of my image. This is what the negative looks like.

8. I fussy cut my butterfly out and adhered it to my take with a glue dot in the center so that the wings sit off of the tag.

9. The sentiment came from one of the toner die cut that came with my Minc.  I added foil to the sentiment and ran it through the Minc as well. You can see the photo above.

10. I adhered the sentiment down with tape. I added ribbon to the tag to complete it.

11. Nice and easy.  I love this method of added color to an image.

Now for those of you who do not have a Minc machine, you can use a laminator in its place.

Here are some other photos of my tag:

This last photo shows how the color looks differently under the light at different angles. 

Sooooo, what do you think? Will you give foiling a chance? I hope so. The effect is totally awesome.
