' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Foiled

Sunday 22 April 2018


Foil is everywhere at the moment, having a revival it seems, in the craft world. Time to pull my foils out along with other older supplies and create something new.

For the background I have stamped the Flourishes from the Sizzix embossing folder & stamp - Flourishes with Flitter Glue and applied the foil on top.

The focal image is Daisy from the Indigoblu Colour Me collection. I stamped it with Versamark and applied chalks on top.

To finish I added pearls in the flower center using in one go as many pearls as I have used for the last 10 years! Thankfully these were adhesive backed so not as fiddly as normal.

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the SSS Wednesday Challenge, Craft Stamper TIMI, AllsortsLost Coast Designs, and Stamping Sensations challenges.
