Beyond Paper

Thursday, May 9, 2013

I mounted my tin foil onto a piece of cardstock with  gel medium before sending it through my cuttlebug. This gave it a little more rigidity and made it easier to work with.  I decided to deboss rather then emboss so that I could color in the impression with copics.
I tried all of my embossing folders and they all looked cool!
I'm sure I'll be using these pieces on other projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
