Hey Dude - Foiled

This month at Mix It Up, we're using foil (or anything goes). And - WOW - I am new to using a minc machine, but man, does it produce beautiful results!!

I used one of my favorite stencils (square dance stencil) and decofoil, applied it randomly to a piece of 110 lb. white card stock; I allowed it to dry overnight, then ran it through my minc machine using amethyst decofoil. I tried to capture the colors; amazing, it has blue, gold and silver.

Trying to capture the amazing colors!

I used the Stamp Market hey die cut from white card stock 3 times, then cut from blue and gold card stock. The 'dude' is from a discontinued stamp company, but I thought it was perfect as I wanted this to be a masculine card. I embossed the dude with white embossing powder; can you see how the foil reflects on the 'hey' in some areas and looks blue (at the top); there's no blue card stock there, strictly a reflection of the foil - amazing!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you'll join us at Mix It Up - you can do foiling or as always, anything goes - we truly love seeing your creations!
