Foiling a stamped image: Addicted to CAS

Hello! I'm excited today because I have been invited to be a guest designer at Addicted to CAS - the theme this week is "Wish". I also have a fun technique to share with you!
I started by making an ink pad using Ranger Cut and Dry, and inked it up with Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Paint. I then used the "Make a wish" stamp set from Create a Smile, and inked up the word "wish" with my home made ink pad. I waited for the paint to dry, then ran it through my Minc Mini machine with some blue reactive foil. It worked a charm!
I then took out the "Lots of Stars" stencil from Create a Smile, and used some Caribbean Sky and Persian Blue inks from Altenew to blend ink over the card. Then, leaving the first stencil in place, I put the Winnie and Walter "Big Bang Sci-Fi Star" Creative Screenings stencil over the top, and inked in some of those little stars over the top. I then added in some more little stars with my Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen.  I added the "upon a star" bit of the sentiment with Sapphire ink, and then I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.


Thanks for visiting :)
