A promise long past due...

...finally got done today.  You've been asking for a video of my dark side embossing technique, so here it is:


These papers are luscious and the perfect addition to your card-making stash.  The next four photos are ones made utilizing alcohol inks on silver foiled cardstock.





These two utilize heavy-bodied acrylic paints on fuchsia foil with the same technique.



 Here I've daubed copper acrlic ink over a softer copper-foiled piece.


I hope I've encouraged you to take a walk on the dark side!

  5. Oh so yummy! I think I will utilise this fun technique on my pick a stick challenge page for February. It says 'add foil'. There is no rule that it isn't embossed, painted and inked foil! Thanks for sharing.
