Foil on acetate and watercolor

Maya foiled acetate design in papers

Isn't it lovely when you get an idea in your head and try it out and it actually works like you intended to. Yay! I saw some heat resistent acetate when I was browsing my fav scrapbook store the other day, it was rather thin and not the thicker one I was looking for. But I saw the words laser printing on the package and got the idea in my head so I had to get it. Home I went and I printed out some digital Project Life cards on a page, got out my foil and laminator and when I was done I did a happydance because it turned out just as I wanted. I made a water coloured background using a few SpectrumAquas and I also very quickly watercolored a flower from Lawn Fawn and didn't even bother to make a sentiment because foil and watercolor was enough. I'm still very happy and oh, the possibilities. My acetate is by Crafters Companion and I used it with Fab Foil by WOW!, I'm sure there are other brands that will work as well, this is just what I had on hand and it worked great :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
