Believe in Your Dreams

I have a fun CAS card for you today : )


 My stamping New Year goal is to use my unused stamps. I have a few Lawn Fawn Stamps that have not seen ink, so I used this pretty rose.

  I used a thicker Gesso thru a stencil and once dry, added watercolor crayons over it. The image is on a painted BG sheet and I stamped and fussy cut out 2 of the flowers, and layered them for dimension. I added a little Copic Marker for shading.  I did the same for the leaves.  I added sequins and a simple sentiment.

Stamps are from Lawn Fawn .  Please bear with me if I have not been by your blog- I am away and am not getting too much computer time.

Challenges:
Outlawz- Twisted Thursday-AG
Pile it On- Paint- rose and leaf, and watercolor crayon painted over gesso for BG
Cupcake Inspiration- Insp picture- colors from pic used
CAS Mix up- CAS with Mixed Media + Watercoloring


Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly

I always drool over floral cards. They just are so pretty and I know my mother would have loved anything floral. It must be in my genes. Gorgeous colors and texture. I have several Lawn Fawn sets that I've never used either. I'm going to have to remedy that. Thanks for the reminder and the inspiration. Stay warm and dry!

hi shelly been sick again and just catching up. hope everything's ok. what a pretty card. I'm saving it as a sample of TJ Gesstencilled Crayons from Dec. 2014 because I'd bet money that's the tech you used. xoxo
