Springtime Foil Smear

I will be sad to see Sale-A-Bration end on March 31st.  Especially because the Sale-A-Bration Springtime Foil card stock is AMAZING and so pretty.  It is white with silver, gold, or rose gold on each of the patterns.  The cool thing about it, it has a sheen to it so coloring the background is a breeze.  On this card, I simply smeared the ink pad directly onto the cardstock (I used night of navy), and rubbed off (going in one direction for better look),  The color stays in a lighter shade and the gold/silver pops through.  Sort of like emboss resist.

The real life finished product is so much prettier than the picture could ever show.  The bird from the Petal Palette stamp set is embossed in gold, and the outside border is flanked in gold foil.

My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.  Interested in an item (or two or three)?  Just click the links below and order online.  And if you spend $50 you can get the Springtime Foils FREE.
