Foiled butterfly

I had such good fun making this card, I have rolls and rolls of foil that I bought and was not using so I did a bit of research and found that they can be used with a laser printer but I don't have one so I printed off the butterflies (which are from the stampin up digital studio) on my ink jet printer and ran it through a laminator, it did not cover the whole image but gave a nice effect which was difficult to photograph, I did the same technique with the plain black card. The white card was embossed. I have added diamond black stickles to the butterfly. I can't wait to have a play with different colours of stamps and foils, so check back to see what happens.

Wow! Stunning effect. What a clever way to use foil. I've never tried any; it looks like such fun!

This is given me a few more idea's for a craft I will be elading in a few weeks time. I am doing *foil technique* I have shared a few examples on my blog.
Its a simple craft club run on a £1.00 per head budget. So I am always searching new idea's.

Thankyou for sharing this.
