Hi there! I was in need of a special card ~ one for my dear husband Scott in celebration of our wedding anniversary :) I married my best friend 11 years ago on the beautiful island of St. Lucia:
I created a mixed media style card for Scott full of texture, color and pretty embellishments:
To create the background, I used a stencil along with modeling paste when dry, I added lots of color using the following beautiful shimmery ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes: Forest Green, Pretty PeridotKiwi:
 Once assembled, I added more texture and design by randomly applying Radiant Gels Dimensional Paint Emperor's Gold along with a stencil:

 I completed the card with a variety of embellishments from my stash and added a die cut sentiment:
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Try it on Tuesday ~ Watches and Clocks
For color inspiration: I joined along with the Words & Paintery June challenge:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Sparkle and Shine challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
