Playful card

Hi everyone! I just felt like just playing and having fun today so I made a playful card in a mixed media style for a friends upcoming birthday!

I first began with coloring my flower stamp from Plate of Rubber Natural Beauty collection with some Tombow markers, spritzing the stamp lightly with water and then pressing that image onto some water color paper. 

The extra image was used to create dimension by cutting out a center and adding it to the flower along with a white pearl on the front of the card. But first I added some Playful Peony from ColourArte to give it some shimmer and used a fan brush to make some sparkly splats.

Then I took a blue marker and colored in around the edges and used my Koi water brush to soften the line a bit around the flower, leaving it darkest nearest to the flower and lighter as it moved away. To get the splotches and splatter look I colored onto my stamp block, spritzed it and smooshed it down on the paper.

I hope you get out and play some today!
