I wasn’t really sure about this color palette. This couldn’t be further from my comfort zone!
This is the beauty of the challenges and why I participate, they push me to do something different.
I didn’t have any idea what to create until I pulled out the stencils from the newest Make It mini – Lovely Lace.
I pulled out three Distress Stains – Weathered Wood, Squeezed Lemonade and Carved pumpkin and starting dabbing the colors over the stencils in the kit. 

Next I used Transfer Gel from Thermoweb to create some bases for foiling. I spread the Gel over various pieces of white card stock.
Here are the pieces after the Gel dries clear:

I cut up foil pieces (gold, pewter and copper) and ran the paper through my laminator. 
Here is what I got:

These are two cards I created:

 MIM Garden Gild kit, embossed with copper EP

I will be able to make several more card with the remaining bases. : )
Thanks for stopping by!
