Hi crafters. I’m always on the lookout for ways to use my foil quill pen. Because it is drawn by hand, the design has to embrace the imperfect, wobbly look. When I saw this card by Lydia ( the last card), I knew this would be great to try, and great for some current challenges.
I started by making a stencil using the mega J die from Altenew. I chose J as it doesn’t have any bothersome middle bits, and there are a few J’s in the family to offload it to. I took out lots of hotfoil scraps and placed them under my J stencil one at a time, and drew horizontal lines. Of course, many are wonky but I am hoping this adds to the handmade charm. You could use a ruler if you wanted. There was trouble with a blue foil, but the others were fine. The foil quill pen only works with hotfoils such as Spellbinders, Go Press n Foil etc. After foiling, I stamped a sentiment from the Concord and 9th Stamptember 2018 monster set, and gold heat embossed it. I did the foiling directly on a cardbase so it is truly one layer, which doesn’t happen often.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Less is More #413: More but still CAS.
My idea was many lines.
CAS mix up February challenge: Stencil from Die cuts.
My choice is heat embossing.
