Foiling a Stencil

When I had this stencil out recently, I decided to do another card with it, this time foiled.

This time I secured the stencil to a Surf Blue panel, and applied transfer gel through it.  After the gel turned from white to clear, I added foil on top and ran it through my laminater.  The panel was then framed in Peacock, and added to a Surf Blue card base.  To finish I cut my sentiment and its shadow and popped them above the card.

It's difficult to capture all the colors in this foil, blue, green, and gold, but I think this photo shows most of them.  I'd like to try more of these watercolor foils - I see they come in lapis, amber, and amethyst, too.

What a stunning look with the foil through a stencil, Lin - wow!! So many cool uses for that foil - I haven't jumped on that bandwagon yet.... But you've inspired me!!

Stunning Lin. I haven't tried this type of technique. The foiling makes such an elegant card.
