Technique Thursday: Embossed Foil Tape

When my friend Linda showed me this technique, I fell in love with it.

So, today I am sharing it virtually here and from 2-6 p.m. at Capture A Memory in Flint Township.

The technique uses Inkssentials’ Foil Tape Sheets, an embossing folder, Claudine Hellmuth Studio’s Gesso, Adirondack Alcohol Inks and Ranger Archival Ink.

Here’s Linda’s video …

And here is what I created using the technique:

The gears are made from embossed foil and then die cut with Tim Holtz/Sizzix mini gears die. I added a few other metal embellishments from the Tim Holtz line (and his papers, too)

These papers are also from Tim Holtz. The brad is from my collection.

I used a variety of Tim Holtz/Inkssentials products to turn a piece of embossed foil into a piece of jewelry. The clear beads are from Maya Road and the little gears are from the hardware store.

Of course, with every technique there is always another way … With this card, I skipped the Gesso and just did alcohol ink on embossed foil. I then cut it out with Tim’s Tiny Tabs die. The papers are also from Tim Holtz and the stamp is from Northwoods.

I also like this technique without the black Archival Ink on top. Personally, I like the bright colors!

I hope you’ll stop by the store and see me today to try out this new technique for yourself.
