The Card Concept #38

The moment I saw the colour challenge at The Card Concept, I fell in love with it.  I just love the combination of yellow with grey and it also gives me the feeling of summer - light and airy (if you know what I mean).  I am going mixed media with this challenge!

Firstly, I stenciled the background very lightly with ice spruce randomly.  Then, I used PB Floral Delicate, coloured with distress pens and spritz with water and stamped onto the card. Then, I used a brush to lightly stamp over the image to give a more watercolour look.  Once dry, I added some glitters on the yellow flowers.  The sentiment is new which I just bought from Kaisercraft Blue Ray which is stamped in ice spruce as well.  The edges are distressed and I finished the card with grey satin ribbon.  I am also popping this into Happy Little StampersSimon Wednesday ChallengeSimon Monday ChallengeAAA Cards and The Daily Marker.



Thanks for taking your time to visit me and have a crafty day!
