Foiled flowers

Hi crafters. One more stencil card for the Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Use stencils. The stencil I used is the Pretty petals stencil from Funky Fossil Designs. I thought it would be great to try the coloured foiling that Jennifer McGuire did in a recent video. I took a black square cardbase and stencilled directly on it with Atelier heavy gloss gel ( this is like thick acrylic paint without any colour). After it dried I foiled it with silver Heidi Swapp foil and coloured with alcohol markers. The cheaper markers actually gave the most opaque colour. I added gems and a sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio Classic words die set.  Where there was unwanted foil, I scraped what I could off with a knife and an eraser and went over the area with a black alcohol marker. This card is so shiny that is difficult to photograph.
