This is a super easy way to get the look of metal tile. The tinfoil is so inexpensive and easy to work with. It takes embossing & alcohol ink like a dream. The panel above (for the heavy metal card in yesterday's post) was painted with gesso and the scratched with a Scor-Pal tool in the groove lines. Actually, that probably makes no sense 'til you check out the tutorial ;o) so here it is...
- Cardstock (great way to use colours you dislike/scrapped pieces)
- Glue Stick
- Scissors/Paper trimmer
- Aluminum foil
- A Cuttlebug
- A Scor-Pal
- or Alcohol ink/Solvent ink (Stazon)
- or Acrylic Paint
(remove any lumpy bits)
This is a great way to make use of scrap cardstock
(with mistakes on it) Or colours you don't like.
(Use as-is, or continue & colour it...)
Step 6. Brayer with white--or a colour:
(Just Gesso/Acrylic Paint/Alcohol ink)
Gesso primes it, so craft inks & e.p will stick!
