Post 225 - Mixed Media Card: Celebrate

Hi folks!

How are you this fine morning? I'm a little exhausted from a lot of work lately, looking forward to relaxing over the weekend. 

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Style Card today. This is a 5 by 7 inches side folding card.  I played with my gelatos after a while today and it was fun. Basically blended colors on top of a card panel on which white gesso was applied then did some stencil work with yellow, black and white acrylics, also did some background stamping. Further, stamped and water colored floral images and fussy cut them. Then arranged the floral images on the card panel (Whose edges were distressed for a worn out torn look) and adhered them. Added few splashes of white and black ink. Finished off, by adhering a die cut sentiment "celebrate" which was die cut in black and white and layered slightly off set and then adhered on top of the card panel. In the end, the card panel was adhered to a black card base. 

List of Supplies:
