Art Partner Challenge

I recently took part in May's Art Partner challenge on The Latest Trends in Mixed Media Arts yahoo group and this is my finished card.

The rules are pretty simple,
Inka will send you one stamp, one card and one embellishment. You get to choose the background and the technique. Winner receives a $10 gift certificate, plus all 10 people get to keep the stamp Inka sends.

This was a lot of fun for me and not something I normally do, stamping and card making so I'm glad I had the chance to play. The angel stamp is great and I know I'll be using her again. I see a shaker card with micro beads coming soon!

The background is three colors of ink that were applied DTP then drybrushed with gesso and added a hint of pearlizing medium across the card. I added pink lace, paper flowers and stamped the text.

I also added a pearl to the middle flower which was the embellishment that was sent with the stamp.

Of course it always looks better in person : )

The pearl really makes the whole card come together nicely. I love your background technique!

Hi Danielle, I love your card! The gesso drybrush technique really makes for a great look, and Inka's stamp is so adorable too!
