Blog reader Susie asked if I’d tried Flitterglu with foils so I’ve had a little play with them and here are the results:
(left over foil sheet)
Firstly, I must apologise about choosing a bug to demo when you were asking about wedding invitations but I wanted to try with a stamp that had lots of detail and this was the first one I picked up! For reference the stamp is a red rubber unmounted stamp by Stampo Las Vegas and the nail foils were from Special FX / Spangles. I smoothed the foil onto the glue image using a cotton wool pad and a little bit of pressure before peeling the foil away. I was impressed with the outcome but…. it wasn’t perfect – the foil didn’t stick in some places so it might not be ideal depending on what stamp you want to use. There was no need to use a scoochy pad after removing the foil sheet.
My second try was using a more wedding appropriate stamp – a solid word one, again from Stampo, and using heat transfer foil this time. It really didn’t work well at all as you can see.
I hope that helped with your question Susie.
