Stencils and Foil Masculine Card

I hope you are not tired of seeing cards with stencils and Deco Foil because I am having so much fun playing with both. I shared yesterday that I recently was taught how to use to the Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes that many of us have gathering dust with our old brass stencils to achieve this gorgeous look with Therm-o-web's Deco Foil. We applied the embossing paste through the brass Dreamweaver buck stencil with a stencil knife and then dried it on an electric griddle. If you don't have an electric griddle just for crafts (like me and my crazy friends), you could let it dry overnight or for several hours at least. I cut a piece of Amber Watercolor Deco Foil just large enough to cover the buck and ran it through a hot laminator  in a folded parchment piece. I love how he turned out!

**Edited to add: I had a request for a tutorial to explain the technique a bit better. I found one here on the Therm-o-Web blog:

The background was created with two Prima stencils - one sponged with Distress Oxide ink and the second layer created with Nuvo Black Diamond Glimmer Paste through a cracked stencil. I layered the card front on a black card base and added "Thinking Of You" from Die-Versions.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Such a nice guy card. I have that old stencil and have used it many times. Don't quite understand the finishing of it though. Wish you had a video for it. Edna
