Spread Your Wings

Hello to you on this beautiful Sunday!!!  The current challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Spread Your Wings and this is my entry.  This is the second challenge this year my daughter, Krista (her blog is Papilio's Rainbow) and I have chosen to do.  We both ran out of time last week!!!  

Onto Mixed Media Heavy Card I stenciled Texture Paste through Wendy's Polka Dotty Stencil.  Once that was dry I sprayed the piece with water and sprinkled on PaperArtsy Infusions (Are You Cerise, A Bit Jaded, and Blackcurrant) adding more water in areas that I thought needed it and let it sit to dry blotting some of the really dark areas before they got completely dry.  Next I added Fresco Finish Paint White Fire to the high spots using a mini brayer and dabbed some around the edges using my finger.  I die cut the flourish area using a die from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Mixed Media #2 die set and layered this piece to white cardstock and then to a folded black card.  The quote is from Wendy's stamp set, Exceptional Art SCS142, and the butterfly is from her set, Artful Thoughts SCS145.  The quote was stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black, torn out and layered to black card.  For the butterfly I colored a scrap of white cardstock with Golden Sands Infusions (see picture at bottom of post), dried it, stamped the butterfly, cut it out, and then added some variety with Distress Marker Picked Raspberry and a white pen.  Finally I used a black pen to circle around some of the dots.

Oh, my goodness, Wanda! Your card is gorgeous!! Love how you have used the mixed media to create such wonderful layers! Colors are so beautiful, and you have a delightful contrast between the background and the butterfly! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! hugs, Maura
