How to Make Foil Embossed Flowers: Part 1 of 2

Hello everyone!  I have a new ColourArte video tutorial to share with you today, and if you love making flowers, you will love this technique.  It is not new, but I thought it deserved being renewed.  This technique uses only card stock, heavy duty aluminum foil, embossing folders, flower dies or punches, and Vivid Ultra Metallics.  I also used some of the new Primary Elements artist pigments in new shaker jars.

This is actually part one of a two part series, so I hope you will consider subscribing to my channel and following my blog, if you don't already, so you won't miss more fun project tutorials.

I hope you will take a moment to check it out.
