Papertreyink April Blog Hop

Hello!

Today is the PTI April Blog Hop.

I wasn't really sure about this color palette. This couldn't be further from my comfort zone!

This is the beauty of the challenges and why I participate, they push me to do something different.

I didn't have any idea what to create until I pulled out the stencils from the newest Make It mini - Lovely Lace.

I pulled out three Distress Stains - Weathered Wood, Squeezed Lemonade and Carved pumpkin and starting dabbing the colors over the stencils in the kit. 





Next I used Transfer Gel from Thermoweb to create some bases for foiling. I spread the Gel over various pieces of white card stock.

Here are the pieces after the Gel dries clear:




I cut up foil pieces (gold, pewter and copper) and ran the paper through my laminator. 


Here is what I got:




These are two cards I created:

 MIM Garden Gild kit, embossed with copper EP


I will be able to make several more card with the remaining bases. : )

Thanks for stopping by!

I am entering this card in SSS Wednesday Showers and or Flowers.
