Metallic Background

The challenge this week on StampTV MIUM is to use metal on our card. There is also a challenge on the StampTv Kit Addicts page - use Emboss Resist. This is a card I made for the two challenges.

I decided to use aluminium foil for the background. I used an embossing folder to make the pattern and attached it to a white card base.

For the emboss resist, I used a piece of white cardstock, stamped the flowers and leaves with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Using a sponge dauber, I applied ink over the whole panel. The embossed areas resist the ink and stay white. I stamped the sentiment, attached the panel to the background and added a bow with a Glue Dot.

Supplies used:
Gina K. Designs: Made With Love, Birthday Blessings stamp sets
                          Applemint, Peach Bellini, Sweet Mango ink
VersaMark ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Cuttlebug Paper Lace ll embossing folder
Mini Glue Dot
Aluminium foil, White cardstock, Clear embossing powder, ribbon from my stash
