guesting at where creativity meets c9!!!
Hey... happy Monday!! I'm so excited because today I'm guesting over at Where Creativity Meets C9!! I was the winner of the November challenge thus getting the opportunity to design along side the amazing Where Creativity Meets C9 design team!! The theme for this challenge is try something new and the something new I'm trying is a really simple foiling technique that I saw last year, but never got a chance to try. Foiling is a trendy technique right now, but don't worry if you don't have one of those machines that does the foil (I don't) you can still do simple and pretty foiling techniques like the one I used. All you need is an iCraft deco foil adhesive pen and some foil and you are good to go! Simply use the adhesive pen to apply the adhesive to your die cut, allow to dry for 30 seconds to a minute, apply the foil, burnish, remove the foil and you are done! For my card I started by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper with a simple color wash using light blue and gold paints from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set. I let it dry and then trimmed it down. I also have something else I tried that is new to me... a little technique that you can use with the By Your Side die from C9. You can find it here at C9. I die cut the birds from my card front and then pulled them out slightly so I could slip a piece of scrap paper underneath the birds, apply the adhesive and then foil them as you see. Once I had the foiling done I stamped the sentiment from the By Your Side stamp set. The panel was adhered down, some clear and gold sequins were added and I was done. The stamps and dies I used are also new so I'm going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of something new. Thanks to the Where Creativity Meets C9 design team for asking me to guest design!!
Hope you have a wonderful day...
