Dotty Foiling........

Today's card.......
I had a fun and fiddly time doing this card.......
I started by foiling CS with four different colours of foil.
The foiled card was cut using the dot cover plate die.
I die cut another one out of black CS and 
then spent a little while popping them in to give an in-laid effect.
I also popped on a few black dots onto the black sentiment strip.
The Hello sentiment has been die cut and popped up onto foam.
The gold surround has also been foiled using double sided tape.
I continued to have fun and now have a few backgrounds at the ready!

I am enjoying participating in the MFT Camp Create 
and today's challenge for me was 'Foiling'...
I choose the colours to participate in The Male Room colour challenge
I have used Purple as my other colour because the gold and black are neutrals.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

This looks really amazing with that foil shine Mac! I just love it!! I have such a hard time with that foil stuff and have been thinking about the Minc machine, but not sure about getting one. Thanks for the brilliant inspiration! :)

Okay Mac this is absolutely amazing!! Seriously fantastic work. Love the shine of dots! How fun that you now have backgrounds all ready to go. I love this card for its masculine flavor using traditionally feminine shiny material. Awesome work my friend.. You are such an inspiration.
