Hot Foiling Mixed Results
I've been playing about with the Papermania bonding powder and have been finding it quite hard to get consistent results. I've come to the conclusion that bold stamps work better than detailed ones and with text you probably want a plain, fine stamp. I've used TAC stamps on all three cards. On the top card the sentment is by Technique Tuesday. It's a clear stamp and some of the detail was lost, I'm thinking that rubber works better. I ended up using Tonertex foil as I couldn't get a clean image with the Papermania foil.
Not really sure why I made the next one up into a card, except that I probably didn't realise quite how messy it looked. If anyone else has had a go with foiling with stamps I'd be interested to hear how you got on.
Quite pleased with how this one came out. I lost some of the detail on the text but the foiling was quite neat.
