Foiled again and again and again...

Ok...I am taking this foiling to the extreme, huh?...I ran in the studio after work today to finish up these to show...I used some different foils and flakes with the adhesive on the different cuttlebug embossing backgrounds...
This one uses a Mother of Pearl foil I got about 12 years ago...I love this one...very subtle pretty colors...I applied the glue with my fingers, when dry, layed the foil on and rubbed to apply...
This is beautiful in person...I will get a better photo in the studio tomorrow maybe...I used the Rainbow foiling on this one...I love it...I did the colors so that they were very random on the birds, vines and leaves...I trimmed the frame with a gold paint pen...
This tag uses the flakes on the embossed areas...I was in a hurry with this one...as it was an after thought...I could not find the flakes I wanted to use...and had to use what I could get my hands on this afternoon...I do like the look...I have some more experiments to do with some of these tomorrow...if they work...I will share them...if not...you won't hear a peep out of me...LOL...
I was trying to get the colors to show up using a lamp...i normally photograph in natural light...but its so windy here today...I could not be outside to do it...will try again tomorrow...
