Now on to my card!


Let's start with the background. Rainbow. Shamrocks. Lots of future good luck! 

I covered the card front panel with Scor-Tape and laid down the the Visible Image Time Tunnel stencil over it.


I then burnished on the rainbow Deco Foil through the stencil. Next I carefully removed the stencil and burnished gold Deco Foil on the remaining exposed adhesive. I added a couple of layers of patterned paper hills. The edges of the foil got a little mucked up when I pulled off the stencil, so I used a frame die to remove the ick.


I used the quirky Aall and Create Dog Attitude and Aall and Create Moody Kittens images because how could I not?  They are so not in a celebratory mood, which is exactly why I love them. Their faces say it all for us introverts!



I stamped them (and the sentiment for that matter) with Versafine Onyx Black and colored them with Zig markers. Their expressions crack me up and I'm looking forward to more snarky cards with them!

Whew! Here's to much future success for Topflight Stamps!

Now keep hopping and enjoy all the amazing creativity you'll find by these wonderful ladies!

  3. I never thought of using foil thru stencils either...great idea.
    I was going to declare "introverts unite," but that would mean we all had to get together and that certainly wouldn't work! :)
