Tarnished Foil Technique with Butterflies

For today’s card, I used the Fluttering Embossing Folder and a technique I call Impressions of Tarnished Foil.

I’m proud to share that my Impressions of Tarnished Foil technique is going to be featured in an article to be published next year in Scrap and Stamp Arts magazine, in collaboration with Karen Hasheck. Karen has published many articles and I’m thrilled that she will be featuring this technique!
I’m also super excited to tell you that…

There is now a comprehensive tutorial available!  PLUS…
I’m now offering two Online Classes featuring this technique.

Details about this class and how you can get the tutorial are included ahead.
So… onto the card for today! I’m so excited to share this new card creation. The more I play with this technique, the more I fall in love with it. After you see this card I think maybe you will too!

Here’s the full card:

I shared a few projects earlier this year with this technique, and the response has been amazing both online and with my in-person customers. Links to those projects can be found later in this post.

What makes this card so interesting to me is all the texture, dimension and the variations in the light and dark. It is simply rich! The gorgeous Copper Foil butterfly, in the close up below, really shows off these features. It just makes me happy to look at this photograph! It’s the small pleasure in life…

The silver foil circles help set the butterflies apart from the background and almost makes them look like there is a spotlight on each of them. Below is a second close up.

All three butterflies are stamped with Jet Black StazOn, with images from the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set before they are punched out. This small butterfly shown here is punched out of a Copper Foil Sheet. The second small butterfly  is punched out of a Gold Foil Sheet

For this version, I used a Stampin’ Up! Gold Foil Sheet instead of aluminum foil.

The result is slightly different and has it’s pros and cons to aluminum foil. My tutorial includes the pros and cons of using each method.
