Fighting Hard Card Concept 59

This is my second post for the day.
Click here for my October Release Spotlight Hop post.

Hi friends! It's time for a new Card Concept challenge, and this one has some fun colors that I wouldn't normally put together, but certainly had fun making a mess of my studio with! {grin}  I loved those big overflowing scoops in the photo, so made sure there were a bunch of overlapping circle shapes on my layout.

I started my mixed-media card with a thin layer of gesso on white cardstock, then added some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals powders, making a fun watercolor background. Dripping water on, adding more powder, spritzing, letting it drip some more until it was a big fun purple sight to behold.  I then embossed the flowers from Kindness Matters in white and cut with the coordinating Great Kindness Die Set.

I masked off the be kind from the sentiment and embossed the rest of it in the corner in white, then cut a stitched circle from a more peachy part of the paper and embossed the Be I had masked off earlier, cut it out and added the kindness die cut with the ness cut off.  I outlined all of this with black and white gel pens for accent.

Back to my mostly dry background, I scraped on some inka gold all around the edges an added some Tim Holtz rubbons for a little interest.  Next I painted some inka gold on white cardstock, let it dry and then cut the leaves from the Great Kindness Die Set from it.  I then dipped each one in versamark and embossed with sparkly embossing powder.  A bit of sparkly Crystal Nuvo drops on the flower centers, and I just layered it all up and distressed the edges.
