Foiled Rainbows will Color You Happy!

Rainbows are always in season

And, it can’t be overstated, how a beautiful ROYGBIV blend is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face! So, if you need a break from fall colors, dive into today’s project with reckless abandon!

Get Creative

There is so much you can do with digital cut files! If you’re feeling especially creative, it doesn’t take much to separate the parts and make something new with the design.

In just a few minutes, I was able to take the single rainbow and make a background stencil for my foiled design. It might seem like a difficult task, but really it’s just a couple of clicks!

Fun with Foil

This was my first project using Therm-O-Web foil products, and, just like everyone says, it’s addictive! Instead of coloring the rainbows, I flipped things around and made them gold foil.

Now, you might be asking, why foil, why not heat embossing? It’s definitely a different texture. Instead of being raised, the image lays flat on the panel. Overall, it just has a different look.

You can make this too!

Instead of focusing on different techniques, I have a project tutorial for you today. I thought I would show you how to create the project from beginning to end – including how I broke apart the rainbow cut file to create the many-rainbow background stencil.

Go over the rainbow!
