About my card :)

First ever try using Tall card (21cmx7.5cm) and maiden attempt at Mixed media on card.

Pattern paper is taken and gessoed down completely. Then its sponged with spiced marmalade DI. Took TCW - tile stencil and microbial stencil and randomly stencilled it using prima modelling paste.

Took prima Texture clear crackle and applied at an uneven fashion and hit heat gun.

IBS background stamps are stamped on bg using Black Archival ink.

Spellbinders Floral ovals die (newest die in my stash) -smallest diecut is taken and the edges are sponged using mermaid lagoon (new in my stash) and its matted with a piece of crocheted ribbon. A MFT riveria corner diecut is sponged using peeled paint is added on it.

Floral spray made using roses - orange, green and white with Cheerylynn roses medium rose leaves. A seam binding ribbon is misted with inks of spiced marmalade and peeled paint and crinkled bow is tugged under the floral spray with a resin blue flower. K&Company bird sticker (new in my stash) is added near floral spray.

Unity stamp butterfly is heat embossed using UTEE clear EP and added. IBS sentiment is added on a banner. Splatters of Black soot and water down gesso are added for that final touches.

Hope you are more excited as we are.

Happy Hopping Guys!!
