I have shown in an earlier blog post how it foils cut files beautifully and I wanted to experiment by foiling on patterned paper. All you need to do is laser print onto patterned paper and then run it through your Minc machine.
I also wanted to try foiling a printable, so I downloaded Heidi Swapp's free printable from her planner last year ( link on my Pinterest board here) and printed it out in black and white. This was quite successful but if you have a pattern with a lot of shading in the background don't forget this may foil too.
I then tried importing the printable into Photoshop and colouring all the coloured elements black using the paint bucket and saving each individual card as a 3x4 before printing them off on a laser printer and then foiling.
It is really hard to photograph the foil effect but I hope you can see! TFLx
