What perfect way to create an Autumn inspired card than using the wonderful range of StazOn inks from Imagine and Rinea Foils. These foils are great for coloring and die-cutting and together make for a stunning effect. Take a look at how I achieved this stunning end result using these amazing products.
Time: 1 hour
Add a layer of wide double sided tape to the back of a sheet of Rinea Foil and adhere it to a piece of plain cardstock to make it nice and firm for die-cutting.
Use a frame die to cut the foil. Because of the added cardstock, the die did not cut through but rather created an embossed look. The double-sided tape also helps to keep all those little pieces intact adding to the overall look.
Use your StazOn inks with the direct to paper technique to add color to the foils. Start with the lightest color first and then work your way to the darkest color. Repeat as necessary to add as much color as you like. The raised areas on the foil will pick up the color, but leave some of the green foil visible adding to the multicolored effect.
On smooth white cardstock stamp leaves using VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink.
Mix Walnut Ink Crystals with water to create a liquid. Then use a water brush to paint your leaves. Create shading by adding plain crystals and then blend them with your water brush to dissolve them into a darker shade on your leaves. Cut out the leaves.
Stamp a sentiment on an oval card using VersaFine Clair in Pinecone. Lightly ink the edges with the same color and a sponge dauber.
Adhere the foil panel to the front of your card, add the cutout leaves and then add a layer of GlazOn to the leaves and leave to dry. The foil adds a beautiful shimmer and together with all the colors you have just created a spectacular fall theme encouragement card.
