I have so missed crafting and joining in my favourite challenges....
Meet today's card......
Joining in my favourite Challenge, which this month is foiling .....
There are so many ways to do foiling and
if you are looking for more inspiration pop along to The CAS Mix Up Challenge to see more.
After masking off the card I blended Oxide inks and splattered with a tiny amount of water.
I stamped the pretty flower image and the butterfly and then used bleach to whiten up the areas.
After stamping again with flitter glu I popped on the mica flakes.
Finishing off with the stamped Hello sentiment in gold and a little doodling in white.
I want to take the opportunity to thank my dear blog friends for their very kind messages.
I have been so busy lately
and have had no time to join in my favourite challenges.
We have such a friendly and supportive crafting community
and I cherish all my blog friendships.
Sending love and hugs and a heartfelt Thank you x
Challenges I would love to enter.....
Anything goes so long as you include stamping
Wow Mac, you always take these techniques to the next level. I love how you used bleach to pull the colour out of the centre of your foiled flower :)
Hello Mac, good to see you back here, and just that you were busy and not unwell.
This is a stunning card, loving the colours and the foiled flower is fabulous, hope you're weekend is going well, Kate x x
This is a stunning card - it just shines. I know exactly what you mean when life intervenes with stamping. I am behind on my friends blogs and it's hard to catch up. You just have to pick up where you are now. Don't worry, your friends will always be there when you come back.
I missed you and your GORGEOUS cards, Mac. I am glad to see you back with such a BRILLIANT foiling project. Amazing rose and butterfly. Hugs, my friend.

This is such a stunner Mac, wonderful combination of techniques, the bleaching really adds to the delicate look of the foiled flowers, beautiful card, Cathy x
Yay you are back! Missed your amazing creativity and so good to see this beautiful card M. CAS at it's best. So soft and feminine and what a stunning result you got from the foiling. Love it my friend.
Wow, so eye-catching, the foiling looks amazing, beautiful card!
This is truly beautiful Mac and I love the background colour. I've never done any foiling myself, unless using Gold Leaf is a similar thing but this card is really inspirational and your layout is just perfect x
So wonderful to see you here again - I do love your work, and this is another stunning card Mac.
The soft colours behind the delicate foiling on this card are amazing, making for a beautiful result. Love that you stamped over the blended inks and then bleached out the colour.
Looking forward to seeing more of your work, and thank you for your visits to my blog
Beautifully foiled and designed.
Breathtaking! I love the monochromatic colours and the shine from the foiling! I haven't tried bleaching for ages - thanks for the inspiration:) So happy to see you creating again x
And I've missed you too Mac!!
Love this to bits and am sooooo happy you managed to find some time to get back into your crafty space. xxx
This is gorgeous and the foiling looks awesome! xxx
Stunning card Mac, love the design and beautiful colour.
I'm excited to see your creation and we miss you so much at CAS Mix Up, Mac.
This is such a classy foiled flower and butterfly card!
You captured the beautiful shine of the mica flakes in the picture. I love the color of the background and bleaching out the color makes the flower really pop up. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up even though you've been very busy.
How lovely to see you back here, and with such a stunningly pretty card. The foiling effect is pure magic - perfect for the butterfly and that shimmer of gold on the flower too. I love the simplicity of the inky panel, and the bleaching technique is so clever.
Such a pleasure to see your work. I’ve truly missed you. Hope you’ll find some more time to create.
This card is a stunner. The green and the mica flakes are so complimentary. Adding the white in just the right places adds so much too.
Take care dear friend xxx
How beautifully delicate this is.
This is so pretty and delicate, Mac. Thanks for sharing your card with us at The Flower Challenge.
Glad you're back & with one of my favorite cards, Mac! I bought the flitter glue with the hope it could be used like you did, but haven't ever tried it. Thanks so much for the beautiful inspiration!
Magnifique just absolutely stunning Mac, the foiling is just so pretty. I just purchased a cheapie machine to do my foils but not yet opened the box...x
Wow, what a beauty, it has definitely been worth the wait for this card to get posted, it is just amazing. I love the muted colour and the shine from the foil, superb xx
This is gorgeous Mac and very cleverly designed. I love the way you have pulled the colour out of the flower with the bleach and then stamped with the flitter glu and covered with foil, and it looks great against the green background and with the accompanying gold stamped sentiment. I have just realised that you are not on the CAS Mix Up DT anymore, and we will all miss not seeing your eye catching pieces there, but glad that you are entering this as it is a beauty. x
Beautiful, Mac! I love the mica flakes, against your splattered dox inky background, they just add some much! Glad you could come show us a bit of your work!
Love your foiled card Mac great use of the mica flakes. Thanks for sharing your card at CAS Mix Up.
We've missed you Mac and your beautiful creations. This is stunning... I love the shade of green, so restful and the delicate flakes are just so pretty! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS Mix UP
Hello Mac .... this is stunning. The colour is beautiful and soft, and the touch of foil really highlights that gorgeous flower.
So nice to see you on the CAS Mix Up challenge, and also over on the Craft Stamper challenge too. Take care my friend xx
I shut my eyes and there you are making great art work. Another gorgeous piece. Happy creative week, Angela xXx
Congrats on your shout out for this card, very well deserved. It is one of my favourites xx
There you are.. Whilst playing catch up I finally got to you. I hope your little break in creativity was only down to lack of time and nothing other.
As ever I am in awe of the way you can make one flat design come to life. Inspirational as always with those foil pops and a design to be adored..
Now i'm off to seek more treasure. Hugs Tracey xx
