Let's celebrate the new release of Deco Foil and Unity Toner Card Fronts with an Instagram Hop! I used foiling as a resist medium and did some loose watercoloring with the new Wild Garden Unity Toner Card Front.
There are five new Unity Toner Card Front patterns, but I was immediately drawn to the Wild Garden print! The busy, but loose, pattern is so striking! Since the pattern is the outline of the greenery I decided to foil the pattern using Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil Transfer Sheets. It just made sense! And the emerald and gold pattern of the Deco Foil is gorgeous!
I cut a piece of the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil that was slightly larger than my Wild Garden Toner Card Front and placed the foil pretty side up onto the toner card front. I placed the foil and the toner card front into a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper and ran the sandwich through my preheated laminator. I LOVE the look! There are portions of gold and emerald all mixed together and the shine is incredible!
There are many ways to add color to Toner Card Fronts, but one of my favorites is watercolor! And I thought loose watercolor would go well with the overall look and feel of the Wild Garden Toner Card Front. I used regular pan watercolors and added easy color not taking any care to color inside of the lines.
I saved the negative piece of Deco Foil from the toner card front as I always do, but this time I actually used it to make a second card! I covered a piece of white cardstock with iCraft 6x6 Easy Cut Adhesive and added my negative foil piece over the adhesive and pressed it in place. I find it best to roll the foil into the adhesive to minimize bubbles. I trimmed away any excess adhesive and used a rectangle die to cut down the panel. Now I have a beautiful negative foiled piece!
I finished both cards by using a piece of Deco Foil White Foam Adhesive Sheet to pop up the foiled pieces onto a white card base. I stamped a sentiment from the Unity Stamp Co In My Thoughts, Girl Stamp Set and trimmed the edge into a banner and and popped the sentiments onto my cards with iCraft 3D Foam Strips. I hope you've enjoyed this quick two for one tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!
