Welcome to the February Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge! Ever since I discovered the fun of foiling with stencils, I've wanted to foil all the (stencil) things, so that's what I did for my card this month:
I have had this little rainbow stencil approximately forever, and have attempted to use it several times in the more traditional stencilling manners, without success. It doesn't seem to matter how carefully I mask parts of it off, I just don't like the result. (I suppose I could try with just one colour, but... :D) I started by inking and heat-embossing the sentiment, so I had a guide for where I wanted my rainbow. After adding transfer paste through the stencil and allowing it to dry, I used the rainbow foil - success! I don't get all the colours of the rainbow from this, but I'm quite pleased with how it looks. And an extra added bonus - some of the foil also adhered to the sentiment! You can see a bit of that in the close-up below.
