Color Before Foiling with Distress Ink

I love foiling!  The result is simply gorgeous.  Coloring before foiling, however, takes it to a whole new level.  In the following card, I applied distress ink using fingertip sponge daubers to a pre-printed toner image before foiling it with a pretty pinkish/magenta foil.  As you can see, the results were beautiful. :0)  I used images designed by Anna Griffin along with her Minc machine, which I purchased through HSN. However, you can also use a regular laminator to foil.  If you can’t find the Anna Griffin images, I know that Gina K Designs also does these. She calls them foil mates. I linked them below. However, if you have a laser printer that prints with a toner cartridge, then you can print your own images and foil those!!! I did this for a birthday card and I plan to blog it soon, so check back often for it.
