The Heart Desires Challenge #3

I cannot believe it is our third The Heart Desires Challenge already!  Where has the time gone?!  This month we're asking for you to use either succulents/plants, metallic colors, or woodgrain in your cards.  How easy and fun is that?

I was really struck by the metallic geometric elements and pink in the photo.  So first step was to spritz my cardstock with Minc Reactive Mist (the spritzer it comes in is rubbish--you have been warned).  Once dry, I ran it through my lamintor with Deco Gold Foil.  Squee!  Next diecutting and stacking, adding washi, standard stuff.  The flamingo was interesting as I wasn't sure what would happen when I stamped it over the foil.  Worked a treat!

I'm entering this in CAS Mix Up (stamping, spray, diecut)

The Details:  Concord and 9th Beautiful Words stamps and Beautiful You die, VersaFine Onyx Black, Paper Studio washi, Copic C08, Hero Arts Layering Flamingo, Deco Foil Gold, Minc Reactive Mist, Zig glue pen, Hero Arts Bubble Gum, Memento Angel Pink and Rose Bud
