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.

Absolutely beautiful card. Love the colors, and the use of the foil.
I love the technique used and this card is gorgeous!
Such an inspiring card too. Can’t wait to try it out, though will have to make something without a minc machine!
Wow! Amazing technique and stunning card!
Beautiful. Have never tried foiling. Hugz
Gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing.
I really really love the grey color of hello sentiment…The card is so elegant :)
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!
beautiful card, I love it!
Beautiful card! Thanks for the video.
Love how the watercolor is soft and goes slightly outside of the lines. :) Thanks for sharing.

This is a great way to do water color!
Another great technique and video, Shari! Love the card.
Just got the leaves from Wplus9 ans anxious to try your sample
Very pretty! I love that paper too! It is white and yet handles all the wear and tear of paints, water etc!!
Beautiful card! I love the colors – not your traditional fall leaf color.
That foiling is amazing, Shari! I’ve wondered how the Minc worked.
Lovely! I want to try this!
