Post 373: Mixed Media Card- Yay! (dancers)

Hi friends!

I made a card just for fun because I wanted to play in a couple of challenges and also try out some new stamps. This card is 5 by 7 inches in size. I die cut some rectangles from snippets of watercolor paper and then stamped the dancer on them, then did watercoloring with zig markers and an aqua brush. For the card panel, I stamped the leaves around the edges, then added some colorful splatters with a stencil and distress oxides, then stamped the sentiment and for added interest in the background, also added the scripty background stamp. In the end, distressed the edges of the panel, drew hand drawn borders around all the panels with a sharpie, adhered the die cuts to the panel and created some ink splatter. I wanted this to be a happy, cheerful card which could be used for any happy occasion :)
