Finally got a chance to play with my bottle of liquid toner ink. It came in a kit with a case for some included ink pads. That was a enormous fail. The pad let the liquid run all over and dried way to fast. Could not get a decent stamp image to foil. Pads went into the trash. Then I thought to use the new domed pads (that did not ink and sponge so well because they tore so easily). I attached the pad to a dauber then placed the pad securely on the opened top of the toner bottle and tipped it over. I then dabbed the stamp and used my Misti to ink the white text vellum. As long as I lightly pressed and removed quickly then re-applied ink and stamped till I had a good image, it worked. Sent that through laminator with a gold foil and got this result. If I left the stamp with toner on too long it stuck and wanted to tear. Everything, even the poly stamp and the domed sponge, cleaned with soap and water, so I think I will do this more often. I love the look of foiling but never had good results with other attempts.
For the frame layer, this was a piece I cut to use as a mask on the previous project and I really liked the splatter. Trimmed it down. Used a new sunflower stencil on top of the foiled image and sponged a medium gray then stamped the sentiment in a darker gray. Mounted that behind the frame and attached all to the white cs base for this 5×7 card.
