AECP - Level 2 - Beyond Basic Backgrounds

Beginning this next section of my Altenew certification I needed to come up with a WOW background.  After completing all my online classes I decided that I wanted to design a card using Foil and Embossing Paste

Sneak Peek

I chose the Splatter Stencil
I tape the stencil to my background paper and put deco foil Transfer Gel over the holes.  I let this dry until turns clear. 

Now I can run the paper with foil through my laminator.

This is deco foil - Lapis Watercolor 
It is so pretty, but is difficult to photograph

Now there's a couple of elements needed to complete the front of the card.

I stamped the flower using blue inks and then I used my Zig glue pen to add accents of foil in the center.

Sentiment is from

 I don't have the die for this set so I used my Scan-n-Cut to complete that job.

My Finished Card.

Love, Love it!

Thanks for stopping today
