Foil Embossing Technique Page

Here's another fun technique to give a try!!

I saw this done on the internet and metallic rub-ons were used here. I have not worked with them but I do know they are oil based. Here I used black StazOn. I chose that color because it's a product that Stampin' Up! sells and many demonstrators purchase my pages for classes and their own personal use.

After I ran the foil covere card stock through the embossing folder I took my StazOn ink pad and just ran it across the foil. I let it dry for a few minutes and then I wiped off the excess ink. And that is pretty much all there is to this technique. It makes a fun background image. If you have other colors of StazOn you can give them a try to see what effects you get. It is very pretty in other colors and in multiple colors too. Just be careful to use the lighter colors first, you don't want your ink pads ruined.

Give this one a try and have fun!

You can find more technique pages here. And you can purchase the CD's here. The first set is on page one and the second set is on page two, they are easy to find there. To purchase the actual finished pages you will need to contact me via email.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
