Brutus Monroe Glitterstock + Foiling with Fairies


Hello!  Welcome to this weeks Wednesday blog with a fun, whimsical card using Brutus Monroe Lilac Glitterstock and foiling.  I love the look of glitter paper, but dislike the mess of creating my own. The glitterstock from Brutus Monroe solves my problem and there is a great variety of colors.





First, I cut a large tag using the Foundation Stitched Die Set out of Lilac Glitterstock.  I decided to foil the Flying Fairy stencil  with Tidepool Foil. I taped the stencil and tag onto the large media mat using Thermoweb Purple tape.  Once the stencil was secure I spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the fairies using a palette knife. 





While the tag was drying I created the watercolor background using three colors of surface inks Speckled Egg, Rock Candy and Sea.  First I smooshed the three colors in a row on the large media mat then sprayed the ink with water. I used a lot of water so the ink would move around when I swiped and pounced the paper over the ink. This is a simple way to create beautiful backgrounds using the surface inks of your choice. 




Next, I set the background aside to dry and foiled the fairy tag. Once the tag was foiled with Tidepool Foil I added fun foam to the back to give it dimension and added a purple ribbon from a previous inspiration kit. 

For the sentiment I used the Miss you stamp from Sharon's Script.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to stamp it with Raven detail black ink or heat emboss the sentiment. I ultimately decided to heat emboss using Grape Fizz embossing powder, the July Embossing Power of the Month powder. 




I felt that the card needed an additional layer to make it "pop" so I added a piece of Lilac Glitterstock under the watercolor panel. I then adhered the panel to an A2 size card base cut from Not Your Mama's Card Stock using Brutus Monroe craft glue





I love the way this card turned out. It has a great whimsical feel to it. It was so much fun to use the gorgeous Lilac Glitterstock with foiling.
