Happy Wednesday!  I have some exciting news to share today!

I have joined The Card Concept Challenge design team.  I love inspiration challenges!  Mosaic Madness is the theme for the new inspiration challenge.

I chose to create a mix media card using the colors from the inspiration.  I started with  Yupo Paper and Alcohol Inks! For this card, I used Alcohol Pearl ink intrigue, Alcohol ink pearl tranquilAlcohol ink sunshine yellow, and Alcohol ink sunset orange.  I also used some blending solution and a craft mat.

Next, I used the Woodblocks stencils with transparent textured gloss paste using the Ranger palette knife set to add the translucent floral pattern on top of the alcohol ink panel.  

I die cut the letters using true black card stock with an alphabet die I have in my stash. Next, I die cut Altenew's Fine Frames Circles dies using Tim Holtz's Ideology Metallic Kraft paper pad and added a few below the sentiment.  

I added the panel to a top folding PTI Select White card stock base using some foam tapeI added glossy accents to the tops of the black letters. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

Here is a list of many of the products I generally use every time I make a card.
