When my friend Linda showed me this technique, I fell in love with it.
So, today I am sharing it virtually here and from 2-6 p.m. at Capture A Memory in Flint Township.
The technique uses Inkssentials’ Foil Tape Sheets, an embossing folder, Claudine Hellmuth Studio’s Gesso, Adirondack Alcohol Inks and Ranger Archival Ink.
Here’s Linda’s video …
And here is what I created using the technique:
The gears are made from embossed foil and then die cut with Tim Holtz/Sizzix mini gears die. I added a few other metal embellishments from the Tim Holtz line (and his papers, too)
These papers are also from Tim Holtz. The brad is from my collection.
I used a variety of Tim Holtz/Inkssentials products to turn a piece of embossed foil into a piece of jewelry. The clear beads are from Maya Road and the little gears are from the hardware store.
Of course, with every technique there is always another way … With this card, I skipped the Gesso and just did alcohol ink on embossed foil. I then cut it out with Tim’s Tiny Tabs die. The papers are also from Tim Holtz and the stamp is from Northwoods.
I also like this technique without the black Archival Ink on top. Personally, I like the bright colors!
I hope you’ll stop by the store and see me today to try out this new technique for yourself.
