On Golden Wings

Hi paper lovers! As I mentioned in my last few posts I have been dusting off some of my neglected crafty supplies and giving them some attention. I have owned several packages of transfer foil for maybe 3 years? How many times have I used them? ONCE, how sad is that?! Especially sad because its so beautiful!

My card showcases a sweet cherub digital stamp from Crafty Secrets Be My Valentine collection colored with copics and lightly embellished with gold foil. Golden arrows and gilded wings seem perfectly lovely for this cute cupid.

I like clusters of embellishments and this card is piled high with confection like sweetness!

Adding foil is really quite simple, add a touch of adhesive to the areas you want to foil and let liquid glues dry for 30 minutes or until it is tacky but not wet. Lay the foil shiny side up and rub over the area to be foiled. Peel the foil away and instant metallic love!

I'm  going to try to get more creating done today, wish me luck I have been in a creative vacuum this past week!
