I'm submitting this card to Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#110 where they want to see Grunge, CASology - CAS#248 where the cue word is Commencement, and to the on line gallery at Online Classes Sparkle and Shine - this features foils.
I was watching the foiling video from Sparkle and Shine class this morning and realised that I had totally forgotten that you can use glue pens to adhere foil to stamps. I stamped the stars on some scrap card and drew over them with a fine glue pen, allowed them to dry until tacky and then added foil. It's so easy and so effective. I cut them out with matching dies. I stamped a grungy background, stamped a bold sentiment and adhered the stars with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a mat layer of bright turquoise card, and on the white panel added a sentiment and some more stars.
Here's a close up of the foiled stars - so pleased how they turned out!
