Beautiful Handmade Foil Card.

You can create some amazing effects with the GoPress and Foil. Add some additional details to the foiling for an even more stunning effect!
For this card, I added some inking on top of the foiling with some amazing results.

step 4 – Stamp some wording onto a strip of cardstock using VersaFine Clair ink in brown. Trim the sentiment to fit onto the card.

step 5 – To add colour to my background, I misted the foiled piece with water and then sprinkled it with Walnut ink crystals and then misted again with water. Leave the ink to dry.

Trim the background to fit onto the front of a folded card. Add your stamped sentiment to the middle of the foiled image. Finish off the card with an inked chipboard heart.

The inking on top of the foiling looks amazing. You could also ink before foiling the card and it will also look great. The foiled image creates a beautiful home for the sentiment to sit on.

Kaisercraft Documented Layout with hints of colour by Jowilna Nolte

Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.

I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.

love this layout_JN

A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.

A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.

Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.

Where there is Love Art Journal page

With the month of love heading our way it’s time start pulling out all those love themed crafting projects.
Today I am sharing some art journaling inspiration using POP Paint and stamps for a bright and love filled spread.detail1

I wanted a fun and happy page with a few key elements and a nice focal point. Not too bright but with the right amount of colour
and I think I achieved exactly what I had in mind.

step 1 -Dry brush some Burst (orange) POP Paint onto your background in a random fashion.

step1

step 2 – Once the orange is dry, dry brush some Blush POP Paint over it and leave to dry.

step 3 – Trace a heart shape onto your background using a pencil. Use a coloured dye ink spray and remove the nozzle from the bottle
and trace around the heart shape. Leave to dry.

step2

step 4 – Use Onyx POP Paint and some stencils to add details. Lift a small amount of black paint with a sponge dauber and tap off the excess.
Pounce through the stencil design to transfer a thin layer of paint onto your page. Leave to dry.

TIP: The thinner the layer applied the quicker it will dry.

step 5 – Use your fine print stamps and black ink and stamp over your entire page for some added details.

step 6 – Add some stamped heart and sentiment details to finish off your page. Use a white gel pen and draw some details on your page.
