My slump didn't last long, once I had everything out. I attempted this tag a few different ways and this is the way I liked the best. I used my laser printer to copy my stamped image . I used my laminator and deco foil to foil the balloons and my sentiment. (there is a tutorial on my 3rd post called "Try Something New" that will show how I do this) Then I used distress ink to colour around the balloons to create the idea of a sky. I also used distress ink to sponge in some colour on the balloons. I used a glue pen to add some random dots and foiled those (I'm trying to use my foil in a few different ways). I used my gold ink to finish the edges and mounted to a black tag. I have to say, foiling really picks up all the details that embossing just can't quite achieve.
I used the same process to do the foiling on this tag, I just used a coloured card instead of white. No distress ink on this one.
This tag was pretty much a fail, but I thought I'd share it anyways to show the difference between the foiling and the heat embossing, which I used here.
Thanks for dropping in!
