The new Wendy Vecchi Make Art challenge has started so this card is just for fun so I can enter.
I started by brayering a piece of Smoothy card using lots of different colours of Fresco Finish paints.
I then used the Wendy Vecchi Yikes Stripes, Add a Stencil, Ornate Dots overlay and Classic Words stencils with Fresco Finish paints. The numbers are stencilled using Watering Can Archival ink (love this colour!)
I then stamped the background using the Lots of Leaves background stamp with Hey Pesto Fresco Finish paint. The circles are created using a lid that I've dipped into more paint.
The main flower is from the Daisy Art stamp set and is stamped onto a piece of brayered card. I then painted the flower and added a shadow.
I've then edged the main image with Caribean Sea Fresco Finish paint.
The honeycomb pieces are some left over bits and I've painted them and rubbed Amber Treasure Gold over the top. The shabby flowers are by Prima and I've looped some twine behind them and added a gem to the centre. The butterfly is also by Prima and I've painted it and then rubbed Treasure Gold over the top. The sentiment is by Tim Holtz and I've stamped it onto another piece of brayered card.
So, there we have it, a card just for fun and it was too ! I'm entering this card into the Make Art challenge which is to use stencils.
