Mixed Media Card

Hello Everyone,

My third post today, earlier two were scheduled as my DT work.
I made a mixed media card and can't wait to share with you.

here are some more close ups..

I could not take pictures while making this card, but here are the details of step by step process:

1. I started of with design paper from Prima free spirit collection. Rounded the corners.

2. I kept Crafters workshop basket wave stencil in cross angle and applied   texture paste in middle and all corners of paper. Let it dry naturally, if we use heat tool here, texture paste puffs up.

3. I spritzed Lindy's gang spray inks 3 colors - Blue Hawaiian blue, Tibbtan poppy teal and Bachelor blue. The trick here to get the layers is spritz one color, take out excess with kitchen towel and heat set it and the spritz another color. Alright that was blue color layer..

4. I knew I wanted to combine blue and pink for this project, so I brought Funky Fuchsia Dylusion spray and sprayed through Studio Calico Bauble Mask. You can see pink circles in the background. 

5. Next layers are embellishments.. started with white lace, which I adhered with hot glue in the middle.

6.The beautiful flourishes are from Maya Road. Those are chipboard scrolls which I colored with Peeled paint distress paint and attached

7. In middle I've white decorative heart die cut, which my friend gifted me so I don't know which make.

8. Flowers.... most interesting part..Pink and blue are made up with thin foam, and green flowers are made up with paper and all are from my stash, bought locally.

9. I've made it more interesting with splatters of green ink, pearl thread, some green swirls and sugar dot.

10. And lastly I attached this whole piece on to the white card stock.
Hope this to helps to understand , how I made this beauty.
