Embossed Foil/Tin with Ranger Alcohol Inks

click on picture for a larger view

This card was one of my "firsts" embossing on Tin...I was so inspired by a Card that Ranger- Group member Evelyn Spikes did on Tin Foil. Evelyn really rocked this technique. Click Here to see a photo gallery of the beautiful creations by Evelyn the third card in the top row is the card that I tried to case the technique

I used the Provo Craft Embossing Folder on the Cuttlebug machine, called Floral Fantasy
on tin foil.

I daubed with Ranger Applicator and the New Brights - Ranger Alcohol Inks gently onto the foil...oohhhh they are so bright and vibrant..I allowed each color to dry between applications.

Next step, was using Ranger Archival Ink pad...I very slightly and gently grazed the raised embossing with ink and then heat embossed with clear powder.

This was also my first attempt using the Fragments by Tim Holtz...thanks to the gals on the Ranger group for all your help. I applied the alcohol inks onto the fragments, grazed with glossy accents and applied white cardstock to the fragement..This helps to pop out the color.

The " J " is Tim Holtz alpha grunge, this is a very addiciting product and equally mezmorizing is the pigment inks and the stickles...BEWARE OF THIS

Hope my grandaughter enjoys her birthday card.

Stunning results, Connie. I use tin foil tops from coffee cans which is interesting and alredy cut into a circle. Your techniques always turn out so beautiful. This one has awesome colours.
