My card features a fun butterfly shaped shaker. To create this card, I used one of the Stitched Butterfly Trio die to cut a butterfly window on a memory box Stitched Rectangle Layer. I filled the shaker with sequins then layered with another Stitched Rectangle Layer. I added a Pretty Stitches border.

The fun background was created using the Heart Pattern Plate and the sentiment is from the Hope and Thanks stamp set.

To create the background. I stamped the pretty flower bouquet from the Friends and Flowers stamp set in a heart shape then water colored using an oil crayon.

Hi there! It's Mona here today to share a mixed media style card featuring several products from the New Spring 2017 Release along with other fun Poppystamps products. To create the background, I randomly spritzed die cut memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers with various color sprays. The largerBox Stitched Rectangle features two Ring a Ding Corners layered on top. Once the background was completed, I embellished with a die cut Garden Lantern which I added a coating of embossing enamel that added a little shimmer and shine:

Here's a few step shots I took along the way:

To create the background, I started with a 12" x 12" piece of watercolor paper. I applied a coat of clear gesso, allowed to dry then to create lots of texture, I used texture paste along with the memory box Texture Chicken Wire Stencil:

MonaPendletonStencil

Once dry, I applied a thin coat of white gesso:

After the gesso was dry, I randomly applied various colors of paint:

While the paints were drying, I created the embellishments. I applied Distress crackle paint to the die cut Garden Lantern. Once dry, I applied Distress Ink:

To create the flowers, I die cut several Stitched Bloom Trio flowers using watercolor paper then colorized with spray as shown below and paint (not shown):

For the focal point, I featured a double layered pretty Scribble Flower Circle. I love all the pretty little flowers as they are the perfect place holders for tiny pearls. For the sentiment, I used the Scribble hello die and finished with a couple of Pretty Stitches trimming.
