I made this card for Angela's HYCCT challenge today.... This is one of my favorite backgrounds ever, created by layering several colors of spray paint, then removing a layer with another item. I layered yellow and red until I had an orangey mixture, then laid a stencil over the paint and pulled it away. The sentiment (one of my designs from Impression Obsession) is heat embossed on a piece of sanded glossy black cardstock. The leaf is made of watercolor paper, several layers adhered together and sealed with Crystal Lacquer.
Great job with your different techniques, Dina. What a great message too!

I love how you "DID" something to every single element of this card, creating each part yourself instead of using DSP or premade embellishments. Your techniques are so artistic and inspiring! Into my faves!
