Foiled face

Hi crafters. I tried foiling with Heidi Swapp toner ink today. The background was collaged bits with gesso and stencilling on top. This was probably not the best surface to try this on as it was uneven. I took the Dina Wakley Scribbled faces stencil and sponged the toner ink through with a makeup sponge. For the right side of the face, I drew using toner ink inside a refillable marker. I traced the Moroccan lattice pattern (Kaisercraft stencil) with the pen in places, on the left page. I then wondered how to get this through my small Minc. I put turquoise foil over it and folded the piece of paper so the foil was on the outside. This let it fit in my carrier folder. There is a lot of over foiling, but this is mainly due to the uneven background and the thickness. I removed a little of the over-foiling and left the rest. I did try touching up the foil in places with glue or a Foil quill pen. I added a Tim Holtz snarky small talk sticker.

I will have to do a bit more experimenting with the toner ink before I use it on cards. I think smooth paper would be better for a test. It is fine in a journal though. (I glued it into the journal when I was done).
I am entering this page in the Simon says Stamp Monday challenge which is: art journal.

Thanks for visiting,

Christine
