Today I have experimented with the Tarnished Foil technique again, but using it for a feminine card which I love the results.
I have used the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#141493) for these cards. The only difference with the backgrounds is that I embossed the first one with the Gold Foil (#132622) so the Petals were debossed and the 2nd card the Petals are raised. To do this just turn one of the pieces of foil upside down in the embossing folder. Once I embossed the Foil Sheet, I rubbed the Jet Black StazOn ink pad (#101406) over the embossed area. Don't cover the area evenly as it looks better this way. I then rubbed the VersaMark pad (#102283) randomly over the area, again its best not to cover the whole area evenly. I sprinkled Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109129) over the Foil, then heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I again rubbed the Black ink over the top, and repeated the process with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder (#141636), black ink, Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (#109131) and finishing with the black ink. As you can see on the 2 cards, the black ink will colour the raised areas, so the petals are coloured on the second card and the bits between the petals are coloured on the first card.
The cardstock I have used are Crushed Curry (#131288) and Basic Black (#121688). The sentiments are from the Best Birds stamp set (#p141525) and stamped with VersaMark and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. This was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (#145372). The butterflies were cut with the Bold Butterfly Framelits (#138135) and Butterflies Thinlits (#137360). One of the Flourish Thinlits (#141478) was used to cut the border piece under the sentiment. I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) to the butterflies. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the sentiment and butterflies to the card.
