Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
I brayered the background of my card with DecoArt Media Acrylic Green Gold, using only a light touch when brayering so that some of the background was visible. I then applied DecoArt Media Acrylic Pyrrole Orange with an old credit card and then dried with a heat tool.
I then drew a flower onto the background and added shading to the flower with my PanPastels Orange and Magenta. Once I was happy with the shading of the flower I then added Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel around the edges of the flower and smudged with my finger to add shading.
I added colour to the leaves using PanPastel Permanent Green and Green Shade, again adding Black Coarse Medium around the edges for shading. I also added the Black Coarse Medium over a Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil to add a further layer of interest and I also added delicate spaltters of Titanium White Fluid Acrylic.
I die cut small hearts from scrap card and then placed the die cuts onto the background and then applied Magenta PanPastel over the hearts. I also stamped numbers randomly to the backdrop using Black Archival Ink. I then added white highlights with a gel pen along with scratchy lines of Pyrrole Orange Fluid Acrylic using an old credit card.
To complete I added a 'timeless' Remnant Rub' along with a sentiment stamped in Black Archival ink along with more scratch lines using DecoArt Green Gold Fluid Acrylic.
