Be Always Blooming

Hello there! Rachel here with a little inspiration for making a mixed media card. I've gone with the floral theme from this months challenge and used items from all sorts of brands. Here's what I made:

And here's the steps I went through to make it....

I started with a floral stencil from Indigo Blu and some grungepaste that I applied through the stencil.

I removed the stencil and allowed the paste to dry.

Next I used distress crayons and fingers to colour the spaces between the grungepaste.

more colour ...

Next I added the stencil back over the top and pounced opaque fresco paint through onto the grungepaste.

I removed the stencil and tape and then trimmed the piece...

matt and layer the piece up onto the card ....

And finally I added the sentiment made by stamping the sentiment from Tracy Weinzapfel in versamark and setting in orange wow powders.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the process to make this card.

Hugs Rachel x
