Alcohol Inks and Foil


Hello, It’s Saturday once again, and time for Trend Week over at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has a fun challenge for us. She wants us to incorporate both Alcohol Ink and Foiling together. Since I have yet to purchase a foil machine, I decided to use those Gold Gilded Flakes by Nuvo to achieve the same effect. I wasn’t overly thrilled with my inked panel but in the end, once I figured out what to do with it, it came out just fine. The peacock die came to my rescue for sure and is from Poppy Stamps. The greeting is heat embossed and I believe is from Verve.

You know I love to play over at Happy Little Stampers so I will be linking up with them for their Anything Goes with Dies!

Now, jump on over to Just Us Girls and check out all the fabulous submissions by the DT and guest-Mac Mable using these types of products! I bet you will be inspired to play along! I sure hope so!

Take care, Nanc’
