Once again, I used a plain white card. Then I added the paisley print paper in two vertical strips and inked the card and the paper with one of the colors from my Petal Point Color Box (Provence) that I got from JoAnns. The T is a chipboard letter inked also and stamped with H A N K S. Then I tied a fiber around the T and added a “half pearl” from the strand I got at Walmart. The accent on the bottom right is three strands of the “half pearls” “sewn together” with the same fiber tied to the T. And that’s it!

I think this is an original technique … : ). At least, I haven’t seen it in any of the scrapbooking magazines yet. Might have missed it, though? Aluminum foil (heavy duty) works great with fun, bright colors! I started by cutting the right edge of the card with my Fiskars wavy edge scissors and placing a strip of aluminum foil behind it. Then I punched equal size squares of paper out of 4 coordinating colors and used my white rub on letters from Making Memories for the HELLO greeting. Then I adhered small strips of aluminum foil between each colored square. The accent on the left is a square of aluminum foil with a piece of the lime green paper cut out with the wavy edge scissors. I stamped the dragonfly with my embossing stamp pad and silver embossing powder.

I call this a collage card. The bottom layer is a piece of aluminum foil followed by a crumpled piece of lilac tissue paper. Then I used the same colors from card #5 for square punch-outs. Then I used a quote sticker for the greeting and matted it with a piece of aluminum foil cut out with my Fiskars decal edge scissors. Then I added the eyelet size holes and random fibers.
