Mixed Media Card

Hello....

How's your day been? We've had some really heavy rain today
 Just look what it did to my flowers


The cats have been stuck in most of the day as have we ... Still, it gave me a chance to create 

 I'm thrilled to say that my dolphins tag got a Highlight award at the 


Thank you ladies!!
 It inspired me to join in again this week where the challenge is Summer and the optional element is burlap
Because we have such grey clouds today I used grey card but applied all the lovely colours of a summer sea


I used gold Gelatos on the card base first and then took a piece of white CS which I misted in gold and blue Shimmerz paints, stencilled some Patina Shimmerz texture paste and sprayed again... 


The layer on top with the shells is a piece of a napkin which I separated and glued to another scrap of CS then used my finger to add some aqua ink along with  Liquid Pearls, seed pearls and stick on pearls...


I did used the optional element ... some grey burlap which I ruffled and stapled down before adding the  wooden 'Hugs' and in the top left corner I used sticky letter to spell the word Summer.

All in all lots of messy playing today ...

I'll be back tomorrow with a new word prompt for 
Till then be safe and enjoy your weekend

Mixed media suits you well; your take on the challenge is gorgeous. I love what you did with the sea shells. You can create magic with a napkin; wow! These colors are lovely and spot on the theme.
Congrats on your highlight award; so wel deserved!
We had a hot and humid weekend and just one big splash of rain this morning. Me soaking wet when I arrived at work..... and again it is summer here. I am looking forward to a bit cooler weather; my craft room has the temparature of an oven:)
