Exciting new development.
While watching YouTube, I saw some tips for card making with metallic and iridescent plastic, and I wanted to try and recreate some of the techniques with foil cardboard.
First of all, this card embosses amazingly. I had some trouble embossing thinner paper and card and was getting annoyed, but this is wonderful. Secondly, to bring out the embossing, the lady in the video used stazon ink for the non-porous surface, which I don’t have, so I was colouring with black Copic. As the video was speaking about alcohol inks sometimes removing the colour, I noticed that there was silver shining through the black on the pink paper. This lead me to wiping off foil with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. The effect is pretty awesome, and probably preferable to sanding, which is what I was going to try. More experimenting needed, and perhaps a truck load of Christmas coloured foil paper…
