Imagine

It’s been really fun to use Brutus Monroe‘s new Deco Foils in my cards the past week or so!  It’s not something I typically add and I’m really happy to be expanding my supplies and techniques!  I created this card to be featured on Brutus Monroe’s blog today, and want to share it with you here as well!  Isn’t it almost magical?!  This foil is called Tide Pool and it just shimmers with soft colors and pattern! Hence, my ocean theme!

I used soft aqua and purple to bring out the colors in the foil. That beautifully textured embossing folder on the base card is called Waves by Spellbinders.  Using Marble clear toner sheet, I adhered the Tide Pool foil with my laminator then die-cut a circle from it.  A larger die-cut circle in dark purple gave it a nice frame which I adhered to the card base.  On a piece of watercolor cardstock, I heat-embossed in silver the coral, fish and seashell from Stampin Up’s retired By The Tide set, then colored them with my Zig markers.

I arranged my pieces over the circles and attached them with glue and foam tape for dimension.  The sentiment is from Stampendous’ Laurel Burch Imagine Butterflies set and I silver embossed that onto a strip of dark purple card stock, then added a couple faux water droplets for accent.  I went a little crazy with my Crystal Effects by making more droplets all around the card, then to top it off, added sequins!  Sometimes I just can’t stop and yet, I think all the elements work well together!  I’m really happy with the overall design of this and think that the Tide Pool foil is the prettiest focal point!
