The Therm O Web Gina K. Designs StampnFoil line is my favorite release of 2018. But, I love coming up with new ways to use products I already love. So I decided to try to use the Gina K. Designs for Therm O Web Foil-Mates and StampnFoil Detail Sheets as a watercolor resist.

The foiled elements resist watercolor beautifully and adding color to the white backgrounds creates a totally new look!

Just remember that Foil-Mates are not printed on watercolor cardstock, so it is important to use as little water as possible.

Check out this video to see how I created all these cards and the watercolor resist elements on them.
