Mixed Media/Collage Card

Hello my friends,
I have some exciting news, I am now part of the wonderful and new Arabic Design Team at Hiraf @hiraf1 challenges blog and have my very first project to share with you today. The first challenge has a fresh green & yellow mood board inspired by a beautiful Spring.
I have created a Collage & Mixed Media card based around a Spring garden using a stamped image from Ultimate Crafts, The Ritz Collection. She was coloured using Promarkers Alcohol marker pens.
First I stencilled the background using a Prima 6x6” Sunrise Sunset stencil and then lightly distressed it.
I then took some torn book pages, ephemera and fussy cut pieces along with my stamped lady and distressed their edges before adding to my card front.
Finally I added two corner diecuts and a little pleated tulle for texture, along with my Love Much, Laugh Often sentiment.
I distressed the images etc using vintage photo, mustard seed & mowed lawn distress inks by Tim Holtz.

I hope you like it and it inspires you to try something yourself.
