Shabby Pink Grace

Hi friends! It's Monday again already (after a fun, but exhausting vacation) and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  I got a chance to watch a few mixed media videos this weekend and was so inspired, I had to take my card in that direction.

I started with papers from the Typecast collection, distressing with black soot, pumice stone, spun sugar and vintage photo inks.  Next I added some tattered rose distress paint with a stencil and then splattered some water drops all around. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Scripture Medley 4 compilation in white on vellum and stitched to the square panel.  I roughed up all the edges with a paper distresser.

For my embellishment I chose a paper flower from the stash and lightly sponged with some watered down tattered rose distress paint.  The leaf stem was originally green and brown, but I wanted to pull in the pinks, so covered with heavy white gesso and then coated with frantage shabby pink embossing enamel.  I love the look and it's so sparkly in real life.  A bit of sponged lace and some tattered edges finish things off.
