Just the way it goes

Hi ya'll!

Wanted to share a card that I made for

I painted Gesso all over the paper first. I  "finger" painted the  teal and green with acrylic paint.
I didn't have any purple paint, so I pulled out my trusty purple Gelato crayon. Just added water with a paintbrush to mimic the paint. The black streaks are black India ink. I would draw a line with the India ink dropper and then hold the paper up to get the dripped effect. The black speckles are from a stamp.
The result was this pretty modern art piece. 
I found this old Ali Edwards stamp in my stash. I don't know why, but I felt this sentiment was perfect!!!  Weird sense of humor???? I heat embossed it with black embossing powder, then fussy cut it. Added a black bow... and ta da!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
