Easter Spring Mixed Media Card

Here is my April DT project for Crafts Dreamy. There is a monthly challenge at their blog where you will find all the details & a new mood board each month

for inspiration. This month the main inspiration is vintage spring & Easter colors.....

I have created a mixed media card around spring .

First I created some layers with patterned paper, then I repeatedly sprayed alcohol inks &

stamped a little bit to add color & texture.

Then i stenciled using texture paste & splattered some white & brown paint,

Before adding Hessian piece, paper doll, paper flowers, quote sticker & glass beads to finish it off

Supplies list :
Rico Design Figures Silicone StampINKS-
Tim Holtz Distress spray-vintage photo -DIY alcohol inks
Heavy weight white paper (local store)
Graphic 45 - Le Cirque Collection - 8*8 Double Sided Paper - Magnifique
WHSmith watercolor pencils -brown,
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Dolls
white acrylic paint, gessoTacky Glue, paper flowers, glass beads all from my stash.
