Stay Close To Nature.....

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.

Sensational colour work - love how you laid down the background, so cool - and your flower is fab. The white accents and splatter really lift the piece, and I love the sentiment.
