TSOT 535 - Gold Foiled Leaves

Welcome to this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge! 

It is an either-or challenge this week - use the technique, the sketch or both. 

I used both the sketch and the technique - my images are set off center and I used a corner image rather than mixed sized circles. 

I foiled a piece of black cardstock with gold foil and adhered that to a gold foil cardstock background. I chose pinks to go with the black to create a bold statement. The sentiment was stamped and die cut, along with a border. The same cardstock colours were die cut using narrow strip dies that added a pattern to the paper. They were adhered to a piece of gold foil cardstock and placed in the top corner. I added some gold metallic thread and a few pink enamel dots around the sentiment. 


This is the card that I originally created for this challenge and decided I really wasn't happy with it... 

The background was created using a series of three layering stencils and three blue inks. The circles were die cut in four sizes and the flowers were all Cricut cut. Each flower has a dark blue base, a lighter blue middle layer and a vellum top layer. The stamens were Circut cut in two shades of yellow and small enamel dots were added to the centres. I placed some gold metallic thread behind the largest circle and tucked a small sentiment behind the largest flower.
