Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers May Mixed Media Challenge.
I used a stamp from Happy Little Stampers’ Doodle Flowers
. I also created a small, homemade, fussy cut stencil using the same flower in this set. I used some smooshed Brusho Crystal Colors to create a background paper.
Today’s card is yet another one that the flowers turned out in a way that reminds me of a book from my childhood. The book is entitled Andy Pandy – in the country.
Have you read this before? I’ll bet some of my U.K. friends have. I love it. 🙂 I’d show you some more photos of it, but my copy is in long-term storage in Albuquerque and I’m in Germany now. 😦 You never know what you’ll miss when you put things into storage! I should be getting those things back soon, though. 🙂
Anyhow, I used the negative spaces of some fussy cut flowers which I used of on this card to make a stencil. I stenciled embossing paste through the homemade stencil three times. After the paste dried, I stamped the flowers on top of the paste. I added some SPLATS of red with a paint brush, some enamel dots and the sentiment strip. The red splats on this card especially remind me of an illustration of Looby Loo and some red poppies. I’d love to see that page, so if you have a copy and want to email it to me please do!
So! I hope that you have enjoyed seeing my bright flowery card on what might be a gray day in you part of the world? Are you excited to join in with our Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge?!
Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
