A wonderful blogging friend did a great thing for me and I wanted to make a card to thank her. I got my inspiration from day two of the Online card class Sparkle and Shine. Day two is all about foiling and I have lots of foil that I've never used so I was ready to go.  The tulips are a Penny Black die that I watercolored with Inka Gold put on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and smooshed the paper in. I used an Avery Elle oval die to make the black embossed insert and gold glitter frame. Then using a Zig 2 way glue pen to cardstock I added gold foil to the cardstock and burnished with my bone folder. I cut out the thanks with a Clearly Besotted die and here it is. This is a great class for me since I love sparkle and shine on cards. It has clean and easy and quick techniques. I'm playing in the Chttp://caswatercolour.blogspot.ca/ challenge this month.  Be kind to one another.

  4. What a great way to use the tulips die, Brenda! Great idea to dry emboss the oval--adds so much! I just saw another card using a glue pen with foil & now I've got to do that! I generally just use it with my self-adhesive foam, but I'd really like to add it to images. Thanks for the push to do it!
