Together discover your dreams

Happy Sunday! 
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends! I am stopping in to share another card that I made this weekend. As I have mentioned before, I am trying to learn this mixed media thing, so I just LOVE Mona's new challenge: A Mixed Media Color Challenge.  It is making me want to create outside the box!!!

And this is my card:

I started by coloring wet watercolor paper with Distress Inks-Tattered Rose, Lemonade and Spun Sugar. I then applied a Gesso wash. I stamped the flowers onto this, but I also stamped the flowers on some white card stock, which I colored with Distress markers. I cut them out into individually and
glued down with Modge Podge. More stamping, a little stenciling with fiber paste, ink squiggles, and a little more gesso. I was really pleased with the way the Gesso softened the colors.
Final touch...buttons, twine and ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by!
