Another Hot Foil and Watercolor Background – Pinkfresh Studio

Hi everyone! I was having so much fun combining foil and watercolors, I made another background! This time I chose more vibrant colors compared to my last card. To change things up a bit, I made the card design slightly different by framing the hexagon background. Do you have a favorite out of the two?

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 Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, 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 piece of cardstock with foam tape. To nicely frame the hexagons, I added a white border with the Folk Edge die. This whole piece I adhered on Grapesicle cardstock. I think this purple color matches nicely with the Distress Oxides used. Finally I added a foiled sentiment, and some 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!
