Another Take on Foil Stamping
Here is a variation on the Foil Stamping that I gave you. Pam Fuda of Australia, has kindly agreed to let me post her card and instructions here.
Pam's variation is called Candy Wrapper Cards because rather than using plain old foil you use the wrappers from different colored foil wrapped candies to color the image. Here is Pam's version:
"Stamp your acetate with Stazon or a permanent ink and let it dry. Then run the image thru a xyron machine to make it sticky on the inked side. Now working on the back side tear small pieces of the coloured foil and lay on the image where you want it. Keep putting various colours on till the whole image is coloured to your liking. This sounds very tedious but it really isn't bad. If the pieces are small I find using a pair of tweezers the easiest way to lay the foil down and it does go fairly quick once you get the hang of it.
Naturally, doing this technique, gives me the excuse to just have to buy some candy cause I need the wrappers and once opened oh gosh, the chocolate has to be eaten and not left sitting out on it's own."
This sounds like a dream come true! Stamping and eating chocolate. My kind of technique!
Hope you've gotten some inspiration today!
