Post 200- Mixed Media ATCs (flowers)

Hi Friends :)

How was your weekend ? Mine was quite busy and I squeezed in some time to do some crafting. My niece came visiting after her trip to Dubai and brought me a couple of very cute washi tapes, they have a piano pattern on them. How cute is that? I was thrilled and will treasure them always.

Today, I'd like to share a set of 3 mixed media ATCs (artist trading cards) on the theme of flowers. I used a couple of artploration stencils and did some ink blending with distress oxide to create the background. Then, adhered some die cut flowers and stamped, water colored and fussy cut flower and leaf images. For texture, added some thread. Added some glitter dots with red stickles. Also, did some doodling for added interest. Used Tim Holtz stickers for the titles and in the end finished off with some splatter of white gesso.
