Earlier this week I shared a card with leaves made using copper foil and today I have one using silver foil. Just as beautiful, don’t you think?? It sure looks like gold in the pictures below but it really is silver.
Are you wondering how I created my blue/green rectangle? I used a clear stamp block (size D) and two stamp pads. Using Emerald Envy and Pacific Point stamp pads, I applied ink directly to my clear block and then using a spritzer, lightly misted the block. I placed the block onto Thick Whisper White card stock and let it sit for five minutes. I placed a book on top of it for just a small amount of pressure. When the five minutes was up, I carefully removed the block. Your results will be different with the amount of water you spritz on the block and you may have to try it a few times to get a feel for it.
My paper did warp a bit and I tried to flatten it out by placing quite a few heavy items on top of it after it had thoroughly dried. I also used my heat tool on both sides. As I’m writing this, I realize I could have taped my paper down with blue painters tape and that would have helped with the warping. It wasn’t too much of a problem but if you’re worried about it, I’d try taping it down. I wouldn’t suggest using regular Whisper White paper as it won’t accept the water very well. Watercolor paper or our Shimmery White are both other options.
The stained glass look of the leaf was created with vellum card stock. I explain how I created the leaf in Monday’s post and you can read all about it here. So easy and so pretty!
My sentiment comes from a stamp set that I reach for all the time and it’s included in the Oh Happy Day Card Kit. Unfortunately you can’t purchase the stamp set separately but the kit is filled with enough supplies to make 20 cards, a Basic Black Stampin’ Spot and a clear stamp block.
I went and took another pictures of my card and think this one shows that I used silver a bit better.
