Happy Little Stampers May 2017 Mixed Media Challenge – Splats

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers May Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

img_5926_edited-1
img_5928_edited-1     img_5936_edited-1
 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.

Doodled Flowers

img_5938_edited-1Today’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. 🙂img_5935_edited-1

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.img_5932_edited-1 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.img_5929_edited-1 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!
