Double Take Thursday



As promised, Double Take Thursday starts today with Kim Prince and I challenging each other to use a product, technique, and even tools. Today's card reflects what we had in mind and that was to use heavy duty kitchen tin foil and the Cuttlebug.

Tin foil was embossed with the Cuttlebug and then alcohol ink was dripped onto the tin foil and spread with a paint brush.

The fun in this is for you and I to see how someone else interprets the task at hand. Kim and I have two different styles which will make it even more fun to participate. Let's see Kim's creation here.

I had so much fun with this, and Kim I can't wait to see what we come up with for next week.

This is so awesome! I love the look of this! I have used soda cans for the metal....though the cuttlebug and then used AI to color it! Fun Fun Fun!

Wow, your card is awesome Beth!! I love that stamp you used, and the colours of AI! I never thought of just dropping the inks on the tin foil, I did polished stone on the foil, then ran it thru the cuttlebug....your way sounds much easier, and I love the effect! lol I can't wait for next Thursday!! Thanks so much Beth!
