Hi friends! I'm popping in today with another card I made for the September Diva Inspirations Challenge. Most of it comes from happy accidents that happened to my papers as I used up excess paint from making my Diva Inspirations Hop card.
The background is a swirly wonderland. I actually used cardstock that I stamped out our next release on, then covered with Gesso and stenciled with a scribbles stencil and some modeling paste and mopped up some Lindy's Magicals and then splashed on some liquid watercolors and then splattered some more, and scraped some more gesso until it became a swirly twirly wonderland.
The flowers from Kindness Matters are stamped in tip top taupe on designer paper coated with gesso, then I cut with the Great Kindness Die Set . I accented with a fun snowflake embellishment I've had around for years, then layered onto a piece of the same designer paper and curled up the edges. The side lattice piece is a portion of a die cut from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media set, which has been thoroughly covered in gesso and aqua paint, then a bit of Magicals.
I stamped the sentiment in the corner with Onyx Black ink using my MISTI to stamp it 3 times. The MISTI helps so much for getting perfect impressions with thick, uneven surfaces like this mixed-media background.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you're having a fabulous week.

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
