KS Crew Monday Challenge #14

Hi there. Today's card is for my submission for the KS Crew Monday Challenge #14. The idea is to "Go Green" by using something you may have normally thrown in the trash for a craft project. My item that I reused was aluminum foil. I ran the foil through a Cuttlebug folder with embossing ink inside so it would have a "sticky" surface for me to apply the embossing powder after I took out of the Cuttlebug. The foil took the embossing powder and heat rather well. Actually better than I thought it would. The only problem was the foil is very thin and can rip in places. But, overall I like the technique. Not sure if I created a new technique or not but it's not something I've read about. Thanks for stopping by.
