Here is what I came up with...
I created some cool embellishments using Ranger Inkssentials Foil Tape Sheets and alcohol ink.
Here are some close ups...
|These buttons are part of this collection...I made the black butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch.|
|Love the dimensional stickers from this collection too! And the ribbon is Maya Road.|
Making these foil embellishments was really fun. I cut the sun freehand, but the butterflies and hearts are cut with Sizzix dies and my Big Shot.
To make any of these elements, you'll need Ranger Foil Tape Sheets, alcohol inks, a piece of paper, dies, an embossing folder (I used a damask pattern by Tim Holtz), and a die cutting machine (Big Shot).
|I coloured my sun and hearts with Caramel (or Butterscotch) alcohol ink and the butterflies with Stream.|
|I didn't use just any piece of scrap paper...I used a lovely extra piece of MME left over from my layout :)|
Trim the foil/paper piece so it can be cut by your die...
|These butterflies are movable dies so they are sitting on a base tray (they are magnetic).|
|Roll through your Big Shot and cut out the butterflies.|
|Place foil butterflies in damask patterned embossing folder and run through the Big Shot again.|
|And your butterfly will now look like this....I just LOVE how this foil tape embosses!|
|Gently squeeze Stream alcohol ink (or any colour you like) onto the butterfly.|
|Spread the alcohol ink using the tip of the bottle. The more ink, the darker the colour.|
Because the foil is flexible, you can now play with your embellishments and bend them however you like....
|I adhered only the centre of this butterfly with a pop dot and then lifted its wings off the page.|
