Foilplay

Good morning lovelies - this is a scheduled post - I should hopefully be in the land of nod in Germany when this goes live - hopefully I'll be in Germany anyway!!!

Today I want to show you a tag I have made for the DT at foilplay.  Its not a regular slot - I have to make 4 pieces between now and Christmas and its the short of flexibility that definitely suits me!!
I've chosen to use the double sided sticky sheets, gilding flakes and vintage foiling kit with gluepen that they sell to make my tag. I also used a couple of kanban ready foiled birds too plus the garden greens die and dylusions sentiment stamp from my own stash.



To make the tag I cut the sticky sheet to the same size as the tag then stuck it on the tag. I peeled off the second side and added the flake, rubbed off the excess and shone up with a scootchy foam piece. Then I die cut the leaves and used the pen to add detail in glue, allowed it to dry then did the foiling - I was very impressed with how easily it worked! Then I put the rest of the tag together.

I hope you like this and might give foiling a go!
