Try a Technique at The Paper Plunge

Over at the Paper Plunge, the challenge was to try a technique.  I made this card, but I'm not real thrilled with it.  I wanted to try something else, but time got away and I didn't have time.

This technique is taking a piece of foil, embossing a design on it, coloring it with alcohol markers (SU's blendabilities), then sanding the image lightly to get the dimensional effect.  Maybe it's the colors, I don't know, but I'm sure I can make this look better next time.

Anyway, stay tuned for some other new techniques I'm playing with as well.  Please make sure you pop on over to The Paper Plunge and play with us this week.  It's a lot of fun!

Hope to see you back soon.


  1. Love this Helen! I have some foil sheets but need to get some plain ones rather than colored ones to play with this idea.

  2. I completely LOVE this, Helen! What a really cool technique!
