{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Makes a Get Well Card


Hi, Cornelia here today making a get well card using Blossom Overture, Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds, and ARTplorations Shutters stencil.



I started out by stamping the morning glory

...colored it with Inktense pencils

...then added water. Isn't it amazing how the colors develop with water?

Next I made a mask with post-it notes.

And sponged with the stencil in place.

Now what? I did something on the left that I did not like at all - it went into the garbage....

I cut the panel and dry embossed green cardstock with the stencil to give it some subtle texture. I stamped some more with the Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds and added black splatters to my panel (masked the Morning Glory, to leave it splatter free). I also added glossy accents to the flowers. 

And lastly, I put everything together and added the sentiment.



See you again in two weeks!
