Flowery Mixed Media All Occasion Card...

Happy Monday, everyone! Today's share for Mixed Media Monday is a summery all-occasion card.

I did take step-out photos as I went along this time, but then I pulled a total Homer-Simpson-DOH! move and reformatted the card in my camera before I double-checked to be sure I had transferred the photos to my computer. (It was a busy and stressful week around here last week with a very ill family pet, so I prefer to think that was the reason for my distraction....more than likely it was simply lack of good sleep...LOL)

So if you see items on the supply list and wonder "where are they?" they're most likely on the base of the multi-layered background, and now slightly covered with the flowers and embellishments...

I started by coloring a piece of mixed media paper with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, then adding some die cut lattice shapes in two corners, and molding paste through a stencil across most of the front. 

In the lower left corner, I die cut a couple pieces of paper doily, colored them with the same sprays, and layered one on top of the other, with foam tape and a piece of lace between the two. Then both upper right and lower left corners got more stenciled molding paste for texture.

Here are a few closeups around the this photo, you can barely see the edges of the two die cut doilies with the lace between them...

The two fuchsia-colored flowers were made using Spellbinders Rose Creations dies, but forming them into generic flower shapes instead of roses...

One day while we were out shopping together at a fabric store, my friend was searching through the remnant bin for animal prints, and found a beautiful piece of wide, sheer lace...she told me it was destined to go home with it did...and a piece of it was a perfect subtle addition to the lower right corner of this card...

Lately I find I love to add little details up in the corners of my cards...and this one was no exception...
