Tin Foil Backgrounds
Just thought i'd share this as its a great tip and is a cheap alternative to the quite expensive foiled sheets you can buy :)
This is what you need
Thick Card (old packaging works a treat)
PVA-good quality (Modge Podge or a thick one)
Brush or sponges
Take your desired size of card (A5 is what I’ve used)
Rip a piece of foil a little bit bigger and scrumple it up and lay it flat again
Cut it to size and bung it through your machine with your chosen embossing folder
Swoosh paint all over it then take a damp bit of kitchen roll and wipe off the excess.
Let it dry and your done cheap and easy and rather messy ha ha
For a more distressed look you could gently sand the surface too.
Try different folders and use the emboss and deboss sides for different results, try you alcohol pens and inks instead of the paint ........ you can get some fabby results :)
