Thinking of You!

Hello friends!  I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  I have a fun mixed media card to share.

ink blended a select white card stock panel using saltwater taffy distress ink, salvaged patina distress ink, and fossilized amber distress ink.  I spritz water onto the panel using the distress sprayer.  I let the panel dry.  I used SSS Berries and Leaves stencils to add tone on tone pattern to the background.  I stamped Hero Arts Bold Script background stamp using dark chocolate ink from the back using my fingers for a more irregular pattern.

Once the panel was done, I die cut it using an A2 rectangle die.   I used black acrylic paint and white acrylic paint with an artist brush to add splatters. I used a glue pen to add some Gilding Flakes to add touches of gold onto the panel.  

Next, I used SSS Dandelions Messages stamp set for the solid cluster of dandelions.  I stamped using versafine onyx black ink.  I used foam tape to add the panel to a top folding white card stock base. 

 For the sentiment, I used SSS Garden Greetings stamp set.  I stamped using versamark onto true black card stock and white embossed. I die cut using my Paper Rose Studio sentiment strips die.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

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

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
