I got to use a new toy for this week's theme over at My Sheri Crafts Challenge. This week, we are to create a home decor project (anything but a card) and then link yours up. I got a Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Machine a few months ago and wanted to test it out.
I started with the little label tags that came with the machine and they turned out so good! The idea of this machine is that you print something on a laser printer (black ink) and then you lay these foil transfer sheets over the black part and run it through the Minc machine (like a laminator) and it sticks to the areas that have the laser print on it. Cool huh?!
So next, I wanted to see if I could foil and then print over it. I have to say that it didn't EXACTLY turn out the way that I had planned so I ended up tracing over the printed area with a Sharpie to make it look better. I think it would have been better to stamp over it with StazOn ink or something. I think most people wouldn't notice so I put this 5" x 7" frame on my desk at work and it makes me smile.
Hope you will check it out!!
