Metal Foil Embossing


For the CS girls - these are two sample cards using metal embossing - mostly free hand. There are lots of moulds and stencils you can use but I like the free hand effect. For the burgundy card I used a fiskars texture plate for the background on metal foil, the wine seal foil (I know there is a proper name for them but I dont know what it is :0))is on the top and freehand embossed. They are coloured with alcohol inks and stazon and then sanded. The first card is the wine seal freehand embossed coloured with alcohol inks and sanded, layered onto watercolour paper distressed with rangers inks and walnut ink with a few splashes of my krylon pen for good measure.
