Bugaboo bling – silver printed bassinet sheet

I like getting custom requests from Etsy customers; I find it often gives me the push to try something new. That was the case this week when I was asked to print one of my current designs in a metallic silver, rather than the listing colour ways of blue, pink or grey. Funnily enough it was an idea I had been toying with for a while and about a month ago I had ordered some silver coloured vinyl to give it a try, but it had ended up going on a back burner and never actually materialising. I cut the design on the vinyl cutter and then heat pressed at 160 degrees for 15 seconds; it was a hot peel vinyl so I peeled straight away and it came out really well first time. I think I want to try and experiment with some different foils, with the adhesive screen printed on next, but I have struggled to get a good effect with those in the past. I probably need to spend some time on it to get the combinations exactly right. In the meantime here’s a link to the original listing.
