MFT Camp Create Day 1 - Fantastic Foiling

Hi all!  It's Camp Create week at My Favorite Things and I'm hoping to attend all week.  I'm a day behind, so I have to catch up! 
The challenge for day 1 is foiling.  I have a Minc Mini machine, but don't have a laser printer to do the foiling.  There are other methods, and I chose to use the foiling pen.
You can't see the foiling on this picture, but you can see it on the next one.  I foiled the center of the flower and the stamens.  I first die cut the flower and leaves then added the ink from the pen, placed the foil over the flower, and put it through the Minc Mini.  This was flower was my second try.  It didn't work out very well on the first try, but I did get it to work fine on the second try.  Then I colored it with copic markers.  I then went to work on the watercolored panel.  I used yellow, orange, and green distress inks, dried it, and then put some water droplets on it.  It's adhered to the base with fun foam.  The flower is attached with dimensional tape.  I finished it off with sequins. 

Here's a close-up of the flower so you can see the foil in the light.

 I used the sketch from Can You Case It challenge blog
Here's my badge for this challenge!

 I'm working on the day 2 challenge today which is coloring on kraft.  I don't know that I've ever tried that technique.  I have to break out the Prismacolor pencils!
