If you know me, you know one of my very favorite things about digital images is that you can foil them! As soon as I saw the star background from the Polka Dot Orchard America My Hero set I knew I had to foil it! I printed it on my laser, die cut it using the Rubbernecker Nested Deckle Rectangle Dies, foiled it with my Minc and some Gina K Silver Sequins Foil, ink distressed it and splattered it with some glittered watercolors... yum!
And the sentiments on this set... so many awesome ones... I printed a few leaving room on the sheet for die cutting. I decided I didn't want to cover too much of my background up so I chose a smaller one and cut it using this MFT Label Die that I purchased on vacation at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff... one of my favorite places when I am in the area! I foiled that one with some Radiant Red Foil from Gina K and popped it up so I could tuck some of these awesome stars I cut in silver, red, blue and white underneath using the Whimsy Stamps Upon A Star Die that I got at another one of my fave places, The Paper Collage in Peoria, AZ.
I just love the contrast of the bright shiny foil and the distressed ink blended background...
Hope you'll take a look at this America My Hero set from PDO...it's on sale through sometime this evening along with a whole bunch of other digital sets in the shop! It's fantastic for some beautiful Patriotic creations or even just for an inspirational card or thank you for anyone! I'll be sharing another card with this set this month that's a little different...come back soon!
