Coloring on Gold Foil with the To A Wild Rose Set

For today’s card, I’ll be coloring on Gold Foil with the To A Wild Rose Set

Last week I shared a card made with the same set I’m using today. These two projects are variations on the same basic theme but today’s card features a new twist as I’ve also done some coloring on Gold Foil with the To A Wild Rose Set. You can’t color with just anything on foil since it’s a non-porous surface so that’s the focus of today’s post.

Just like on the card shared on 12/30/20, I’ve used the direct to paper technique, heat embossing, and two-step stamping. Click HERE to see my previous post to learn all the details.

Today I'm sharing another unique card using foil papers. For this card, I'll be coloring on Gold Foil with the To A Wild Rose Set

After all my images were heat embossed, the only thing left to do on the focal piece is to color, but you can’t use regular water-based markers!

  • For the heat embossed images on this card, I’ve colored them in with Blends Alcohol Markers. Since the foil is a non-porous surface, the ink from water-based markers will just sit on the surface and can be rubbed off, but alcohol markers will dry and not rub off.
  • The flower was colored with Bronze and I’ve used a Dark Old Olive Blends Alcohol marker for the leaves.

IMPORTANT TIP: I would NOT recommend using a color lifter on foil sheets. I’ve found that they can remove the metallic finish, in some cases.

A few additional details:

  • The gold foil focal piece is attached directly to the black foil sheet.
  • The string of gold sequins is attached with glue dots around the backside of the black foil.
  • The black foil piece is attached with Dimensionals to a piece of black card stock, that is dry embossed using the Subtle 3-D embossing folder.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my project with coloring on gold foil with the To A Wild Rose Set.

You’ll find dimensions and a supply list at the end of this post in case you’d like to purchase any of the supplies to recreate this card.

Happy Crafting!

Melissa 🙂
