Lifting a Foil Tag

 At the Flying Unicorn, we have a Spotlight Member of the Week in the Gallery section.  Then in the Challenge section of the Forum, we have a weekly challenge to "lift" the spotlight member.  This is a fantastic way to get to know the art and style of the spotlight member.  This past week Gisele was the in the spotlight.  One of the items she has in her gallery is a foil tag.  That was what I decided to lift.
Gisele had crumpled foil; I ran mine thru the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  Then I applied some alcohol ink for the same effect she had.  The treats sticker and the witches' hats sticker are Fancy Pants Oct. 31 Glitter Cuts from the Flying Unicorn Store. The green brad is Pink Paislee Phantom also from the Flying Unicorn Store.  I used some black netting that I rescued and reused from a ham wrap. 


I'm entering this in the Be Transparent Challenge #26 at Vicki's The Cheerful Stamp Pad because the Glitter Cuts are transparent.
