I was unsure about using foiled cardstock as my background but when I saw that the July challenge at Die Cut Divas was tone-on-tone, I decided to proceed with using the foil behind each of the colored Hollyhocks to create that look. I die-cut three sets of Hollyhocks, coloring them with Copic alcohol markers. Just by itself, I think the reflective quality of the metallic is tone-on-tone but the card is a bit different because I went with tone-on-tone in three colors - copper, teal, and rose.
Here is my best attempt at capturing the colors:
Using the foiled cardstock, I added a Hollyhock plant to each section. The plant on gold is colored with gold and yellow, the one on teal is colored in two tones of berry with teal stems and the third is colored in pink and yellow on rose foil. To give the card depth I added the flowers so the stems were not completely glued down.
In keeping with the sketch, gold and silver pearls were added along with a strip of silver foiled cardstock. The sentiment circle was also die-cut in silver but was stamped using gold metallic ink. I added another set of Hollyhocks to the inside for decoration.
