Foils aren't just for cards!!

Good morning all

I'm sharing two more samples made with the lovely new foils 

They're from Crafter's Companion and are launching on Hochanda TV tomorrow

They,re really  so easy to use and you can create really beautiful effects using them as just an accent or as the full focus of the card

I used them in a mixed media effect on this tag in an assortment of the lovely colours
just look at that electric blue!!

it was made with a Tim Holtz tag coloured with Distress inks - in fossilised amber, peacock feathers and abandoned coral.  The rest was just an assortment of transfers and a couple of die cuts in black card with little enamel dots.  Mounted onto black card it really makes the colours pop

My second make is a very traditional type card
made entirely with the Graceful Butterflies transfer set

I simply applied a transfer to the side of the white card and this time used just the silver foil, the butterfly is also made with the transfer, fussy cut and I doubled up a smaller one onto a larger one for a 3D effect.   The lovely sentiment is also a part of the transfer set

This is what I used (all from Crafter's Companion)

card - graceful butterflies transfers
          silver foil
          Downton Abbey Ornate oval frame
          Centura pearl card

tag - Transfers - from the sets -  Lavish lace, graceful butterflies, blooming bouquets,
         opulent flourishes
         Foils - Electric blue, raspberry pink, gold

Don't miss these - they're gorgeous!!

These are gorgeous Judith especially that blue foil, so decedent. Thank you for your comment on my blog, your daughter certainly has the right idea about decorating. My parents did this for me when my children were younger although we all went on holiday for two weeks and when we came home our hallway had been decorated. That's why we love our parents xxx

Loving your mixed media tag, great colour choices.
Thanks for bringing my attention to the fact that my blog was well out of date. I have put it right but i don't suppose it will be long before it needs updating again.
