Dreamweavers Foil Technique

Another card designed by Rebekka of Dreamweavers using this cool clear shimmering foil that looks like little rain drops on the umbrellas.  This photo simply does not do it justice.  We used the umbrella stencil and colored with pigment inks and a stencil brush.  Then we added the sticky powder and heat set.  Put the shimmering foil over the top and run it through a laminating machine (without the laminating plastic - I believe it is the heat and pressure that helps the foil to adhere).  Last step is to pull off the shimimering foil and it leaves those fantastic rain drops.  Dreamweavers sells three different patterns of the shimmering foil, all of which are lovely.  Rebekka always has something new to share.
