After yesterday’s very flat, for me, card, I wanted a little more dimension and some more layers for this one.

Before I start, a question for you – what do you do with the dried up paint on your craft sheet? Here’s what I did!

That’s right, my friends, I made little dried up paint blobs and used them as embellishments – nothing is garbage anymore, I’m afraid!

I painted the background of this card with the leftover tinted gesso from yesterday’s card and let it dry. Then I used another new stencil, the Pointy Circles, and smeared Coarse Texture Gel over a portion of it. I was busy so I waited for it to dry, shocking, but true!

Once it was ready to go, I misted my Dylusions over portions and blotted the excess. I kept layering like that until I had the shades and blends I wanted. I then added vintage book paper, smeared mist over that, added the paint blobs (which I love!), and a leftover heart from a previous card, then misted the whole thing with Kiwi Perfect Pearls Mist. I finished it off with a stamp from Lawn Fawn, one of my favourites.

D is picking up the new seasonal Distress Inks for me this evening so you can bet they’ll be on today’s card, which I’ll post for you here tomorrow! I can’t wait to get my fingers on those fabulous colours!
