Foiled Frames

I just had to play some more with the foiling and frames today...I had fun with these two today...
This frame has the look and feel of leather...kinda like a faux leather effect...I ran the white cardstock frame thru the cuttlebug embossing folder, then painted each diamond shape with the adhesive for foiling...I used the rainbow foil and then randomly used versa mark on the white areas left...then used perfect pearls and pearl ex on the entire piece...I then used some tea dye distress ink to darken the edges of the frame...I then used a soft cloth and burnished the piece...I am going to use this frame in a project coming soon...
I wanted to cover an entire frame with the rainbow foil and then emboss it...it turned out great...
but, I had to go one step further...I added some black ink to the raise areas, then used the foiling adhesive on the embossed areas and used copper foiling in a hit and miss fashion on the swirls...I trimmed the edges with a copper metallic marker...It looks really cool...could not get the lighting just right for the photo...but I will be using this in a future project, so stay tuned...
I am working on another new tech/project...should be ready to share later this week...
