Hi everyone! Today I took out the Gemini Foilpress, and combined a watercolor background with foil. Have you tried this before? I had a lot of fun creating the background, and it was quick and easy to do as well.
On my YouTube channel I have a process video available in which I show you how to combine foiling and watercoloring. I also have a great tip for you on how to easily pop up all the hexagons! If you enjoy watching my videos, make sure to like, subscribe, and leave a comment. I’d love to hear what you enjoyed most!
First I foiled the Folk Garden onto smooth watercolor cardstock with Champagne foil. After foiling, I did watercoloring with Distress Oxides. You can also chose to watercolor first, and then foil. But if you’ve done foiling before, you know there is an error margin. So I prefer to do foiling first, see if it works out, and then do the watercoloring.
Instead of using Distress Oxides, you can use any watercolor medium you want. I used Distress Oxides Saltwater Taffy, Shaded Lilac, and Broken China. I love the soft look it gives when you dilute it with water.
After the background had dried, I die cut it with the Simply Hexagons die, and popped it onto a white cardbase with foam tape. I kept the card design quite simple, and just finished it off with a foiled sentiment, and some foliage and flowers. In the centers of the flowers I added jewels to give them that bit of extra.
I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
