There was just so much to this ... but a little bit of patience and boom ... Big Ba Da Boom.
I love how it came out.
First, I started with white cs ... I blended, painted and smooshed tons of ink - in both distressed and oxide ... just to name a few .... Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Spiced Marmalade - lots of water, lots of squish, lots of dry ... water brush - dry, squish - dry. Once I had the coverage I wanted .... next layer, I stamped with Spiced Marmalade Oxy and a Hero arts Spiced Market background stamp. Next layer, I used a Kaiser Craft stencil (Moroccan tiles) and teal blue metallic texture paste by Heidi Swapp. I added some accents with green Nuvo Drops in the corners and let all that self dry for a bit ..... a long bit.
I stamped the sentiment (from Recollections) with black StazOn onto white vellum and folded that over the top. I secured that onto orange cs and then onto mint green side fold cs base. Once set, I added some lavender sequins about. I know just who will get this one!
