WPlus 9 Watercolor and Foil!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! I had this idea of combining Heidi Swapp Foiling with a bit of watercoloring to create a card and chose the WPlus9 Autumn Leaves stamp set to have the perfect images to try this technique!

I started out white embossing the images onto Tim Holtz watercolor card stock (my favorite because it’s such a true white)!

Once my images were embossed, I ran the panel through the Heidi Swapp Minc machine using silver foil. Oh La La! It’s so shiny!! From there I used my Pine Needles, Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough Distress inks to watercolor.

I’m thrilled at how this technique turned out. I’ve shot a video on how to do each step of the process. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.

  1. Very pretty card! Interesting water color technique used. I have used the same foiling technique with clear embossing powder with my Minc machine as well and found it saves a lot of money compared to using the toner when you don’t have a laser printer! Thanks for sharing your technique Shari!
