August 15, 2018August 13, 2018 CopyCatCards Hi there! This card came about in a very unexpected way! I recently bought a laminating machine and used it successfully a couple of times, but I had some trouble with it the other day! I started this card by taping down Brutus Monroe’s Paint Spots stencil to a piece of card stock, then covering it with a thin layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel. When it was dried I laid on a layer of Sunrise Foil Transfer sheet and ran it through the laminator but it got stuck halfway out! I had to pull it from the machine and it came out all wrinkled and accordian-folded! GAH!! But those foiled dots stayed put so I decided to save it and go with a distressed look! I twisted and wrinkled the panel to add more cool distress lines then got out the beautiful Wagon and Suede Surface Inks and sponged color all over it! Next I used Raven Detail Ink on a sponge to go around the edges and to accent the wrinkles. How awesome is that?! From that point on, I was crankin! I spattered some black and gold craft paint over it all, then die-cut my panel with a Stitched Rectangle die. I added a layer of white behind it and adhered it to a black card base. I die-cut the word “celebrate” from Tim Holtz’ Celebration Block Words using a strip of black card stock, added the textured gold paper behind it and trimmed the end to a banner then mounted it to the card with foam tape for lift. I rummaged around in my stash and found these black sprigs and thought they’d be a great accent, so glued them in behind the sentiment. I absolutely LOVE how this came out! What a save!! As you can see, there are SO many ways to use the Foil Transfer sheets and the cute stencil! You’ll find a really great assortment of both by Brutus Monroe!
