How to create gold foil accents using your stencils

If you haven’t gotten your hands on the TCW Tacky when dry gel medium then you are missing out.
This amazing product can be used with your stencils to create amazing foiled effects.

For this layout I used my Hello Sunshine stencil and my Louann stencil for the dots.
I used the tacky when dry gel applied through the stencils and left to dry for about 30minutes.
Then used my Couture Creations Hot foil, place the foil on top of the gel, burnish with my bone folder and then carefully remove the foil to reveal the foiled stenciled images.TellTheBeesJN_SinglePage

Here’s how I created the look…
step 1 – Using my favorite circle stencil and Memento Luxe inks pads in 3 colors i created my base background.
step1

step 2 – Add 1 colour at a time to your stencil and mist with water. Flip over the stencil and stamp the image onto your journal page.
Start with your lightest color first working your way to the darkest of the 3 colors.
step2

step 3 – Once your background is dry start adding your layers.
I used my TCW 384 Well Rounded Stencil and stenciled my first pattern in orange ink. Repeat this 3 times .
step3

step 4 – Repeat the stenciling over the same image this time using bright pink ink over just two thirds of the same image.
This gives a beautiful deep and rich look.

step 5 – Use a dark brown ink and stencil circles around the first image.

step 6 – Add some modelling paste to a palette. I added some ink to color my paste a beautiful blue.

step 7 – Mix the ink into the paste until fully colored.

step 8 – Apply the colored modelling paste through a different pattern on your stencil onto white cardstock.

step 9 – Carefully remove the stencil and leave the paste to dry. Once dry cut into a heart shape to use on your journaling page.
step9
Cut out a large stamped heart and adhere the smaller heart with the modelling paste mon it inside the cut out heart.
Add stamped wings under the heart and adhere in place.
