Art Card Project using Designer Transfer Foils!

Hi All- Kim here with my first project as a new ScraPerfect DT Member!

I created this Art Card to send to a friend, and it was the perfect opportunity to use some of the great items from ScraPerfect!
I got out The Best Glue Ever and went over the hair and the flowers on the fairy's wings with the glue. You have to wait until the glue has dried clear, to have it work with the Foil, that was the hard part, the waiting...I am an inpatient crafter lol.
Once the glue was dry, it was time for the foil. I used the Crimson Rain on the wings, and the Turquoise Rain on her hair.
All you have to do is lightly rub the foil over the places where you put the glue, and Voila! you have a very easy and cool foil accent for your project.

Once I was finished with the foil, I wanted to add some embellishments to the card. This was the perfect opportunity to use the Embellie Gellie. This stuff is very cool and so easy to use. You just put a little bit of the gellie on the end of the stick and place it where you want your embellishment. I used some very tiny blingy crystals, and it worked perfectly for this.

Here is a look at the card with the bling and the foil technique. She will be "winging" her way to a dear friend soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, for more info please check out my blog HERE
 I am so thrilled to be part of the ScraPerfect team so please check out the ScraPerfect shop for lots of great crafting items.

I love her sweet face, the colors and details even the tattoos --I think the foil and sparkly embellies add a layer of intrigue!!!! Did you create the artwork yourself? (I can see in the process you've added the ink to define her bodice...Did you use alcohol inks?) She's so pretty!


Hello Kim, you do not look like a mother of grown children let alone having 3 grandchildren. I am loving the works that are using foil. I have never worked with foil until ScraPerfect. Great work and great tips.

thanks so much ladies! @Mom2Two, I did create the art myself, I had practiced a similar fairy in my art journal but wanted to create a card for a friend as she loves fairies so I just went for it. I used watercolours mainly for her along with some gelatos. @MoniqueMixon Thanks so much for your comment too, and yes I am a Grandma to 3 gorgeous kiddos! :)
