Stamping a Card with Mixed Media Flair!

Hello friends!

I am popping in to share a very colorful and bright card. Are you ready?😎
For this card, I used the following supplies (click photos for details):

Tim Holtz Mosaic Stencil

thank you (2)

I was really happy with the creative process as the result is not too shabby, either!

This card involves (in chronological order):
~multi-color stamping: each petal is stamped multiple times (with the help of MISTI)
~partially clear-embossed: this ensures the background will not mixed with the tulip and leaves
~ink-smooshing: the background was created with Distress Inks, water and a piece of acetate.
~applying embossing paste is easy with a tool like Dina Wakley Mixed Media Tools. If you love stencils and embossing paste, this tool is a must.

thank you

This card is super bright thanks to the color combo.
  I love stamping my own design and alter the look of a stamp.
thank you-001
 Hope today's post inspires you to create something fun and colorful. 
Believe it or not....I have another version with the Penny Black cling stamp First Waltz.
Hope you return to check it out! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I was wondering how you did this.. (read Nicole, read!!) oh, clear embossing before you did the ink smooching, how brilliant, have to try that. Great result, thanks for the inspiration!!!
