Catherine Pooler blog hop day 2 – squared foiling

Squared foiling with Catherine Pooler

It’s day two of the Catherine Pooler release blog hop. Have you seen all the amazing projects from day one yet? They are amazing! The second day doesn’t need to hide though 😉 My cards for today are a mix of elegance and grunge. I love working with stencils and the new one is awesome.

As I said before, the fluid has to dry for some time, so I let it sit over night and added the foil the next day. It looked gorgeous and …

Close Up 1

I love this week’s sketch challenge at Can You Case It! It’s one of those simple ones that open up so many possibilities. Not too long ago, I found Reactive Mist at Joann’s that can be used with the Minc machine and I was super excited about the new possibilities for the foils. To be honest they already caught a lot of dust, but the spray makes it interesting again. That’s why my first idea was to layer foiled vellum on top of some pretty patterned paper.
