CAS mixed media card




Hello my friends. Back again with another card. This one came together quite quickly and I was quite pleased with the result.






It is a flat one layer card, but it still has a number of layers built in using the acrylic paints.


First layer was laid down using a brayer. I used Paperartsy fresco acrylic paints and chose several autumnal hues including cheesecake, tinned peas, chocolate pudding, pumpkin soup, beach hut, autumn fire, tango.


The next layer was put down with a make up sponge, hence adding more texture.
Finally I stamped with a texture stamp using the paints.


Once I was happy with the background I stamped the tulip n black archival ink, followed by the sentiment and then the small bunch of flowers.


I coloured them in with Spectrum Noir pencils and then added some white dots, with a sharpie pen, as highlights.



I stamped the background with a small flowerhead using antique linen distress ink.



Finally I added stickles to the centres of the small flowers and under the tulip. And lastly I added some sequins.




I tried to take several pics but they do not do it justice. It looks much brighter in real life.
The stamps are a JOFY set that is from Paperartsy as well.







I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Less is more - one layer card: dreams

  1. Theresa, you've done a super job of this. The layers of paint and stamping add the most amazing visual depth, and it's still a one layer card... wow!
