If you've arrived from the blog of Nenette S Madero you are in the right place and if you need to start back at the beginning of the blog hop you can head back to the Altenew Card Blog.
There are so many color possibilities with the Craft-A-Flower dies, I decided to ink watercolor paper with Sunkissed, Rouge, Cotton Candy, Purple Wine, Crimson, Paper Bag and Just Green Watercolor Brush Markers and then die cut with the CAF: Azalea dies.
I've layered the "petals" over the base with Instant Dimension Foam Tape. The background is an A2 watercolor panel I picked up the leftover color from a previous project with and after watching this YouTube video decided to try and add gold foiling with the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die. Now for a disclaimer, the hot foil machine I have is old-it's a Go Press and Foil I bought off Amazon a while ago and finally dusted off to give this a try so I have no experience with the current hot foil systems on the market.
The photo does not do justice to the beautiful gold shimmer on the card front.
Sentiment is die cut from Gold Foil card stock with the Essential Sentiments die set.
This time I inked white card stock with the following Crisp Dye inks:
-Second Layer-Sunkissed, Rouge and a little Dark Chocolate on the smaller bloom
-Stamen-Dark Chocolate, Rouge and Orange Crush
I covered a slightly smaller than 4" x 5 1/4" white card stock panel with Peach Gold Wide Washi tape then matted that on black card stock.
A hexagon is die cut from Gold Mirror card stock with the hexagon from the Geo Frame die set, then cut in half and layered underneath the CAF blooms.
Prior to adding the Rose Gold Crisp heat embossed sentiment, I splattered Jet Black Watercolor with the watercolor brush marker all over the panel.
