Spring flowers for WOW


The theme at the WOW blog this month is spring, you should join us and have a chance to win some WOW goodies. This lovely flower stamp called Tropical was perfect for spring flowers. I am in love with this stamp! I embossed them in copper embossing powder and colored it up using Spectrum Noir AquaMarkers. It looks really good with the warm tone of the embossing and the soft hue of the AquaMarkers. I've just begun playing with the AquaMarkers but we already get along great despite my lack of patience for watercoloring. The set I've got has the loveliest of colors and this soft pink is just so pretty! 


I got some FabFoil from WOW to play with. It works with toner ink from laser printers and a laminator but I also got some WOW bonding powder and that's what I used here. I don't have a laser printer (yet...) but this worked almost as good. It turned very shiny and pretty compared to when I tried the foil with Stick-it, but that is probably because the Stick-it is just temporary for the first hour or two and the foil did not stick as well to it as it did to the bonding powder. I can't wait to try it with the toner ink and laminator, I saw samples and they were perfect! Foil is like magic to me, just like embossing was when I first started paper crafting. The name Fab Foil says it all, it's foil and it's fab. Just get some!

If you want to try the Fab Foil you can find it here in tons of different colors. 

See you soon again, thank you for stopping by!

I watched a TH video showing the foils and was inspired to try this. When foils came out ten years ago the projects were HIDEOUS! HA! So good to see an oldie become new and better. I love the colors on this and am surprised at how well you were able to color the foiled image. I bet using the toner wouldn't work as well because it wouldn't be a raised image... Just saying! Save some $ and keep up with the good work! ;0 LOVE THIS!
