Just for Fun...

Hi-ho, happy Monday! Today's card was made just for fun...a mix of some newly-found older supplies, with a new doily die, some chipboard and flowers...and a take-it-as-it-comes attitude while it all came together. :)

A while back, I found a baggie with some faux "wood planks" that I made up last year...pieces of chipboard cut and coated with paint, crackle medium, ink, and treated to lots of distressing. I used one small piece of it on a watercolor card a few weeks ago, stamping the sentiment onto it. Today, I pulled more of those planks from the baggie to form a background for the card...only this time, I added some splatters from a couple different colored paint pens to further distress the pieces...

The largest flower in the cluster is the rose made using the Spellbinders Rose Creation dies...

and up the side, a flower stem filled with mulit-colored flowers and yellow leaves...the aqua leaves were die-cut and threaded into the stem to add more of the blue accents...

The chipboard window was coated with white paint, then some crackle medium, and finally a couple different colored inks to accentuate the crackles...

Here's a closeup of the faux wood strips...

Patterned papers:   My Minds Eye "Sky's the Limit"
Chipboard window:   Maya Road
