This is quite a mix media card. I used shoe polish and masking tape to make the branches for the flowers. I used shoe polish, white glue and white acrylic paint for the faux barn board. I really like how this card turned out. It was nice to think of warm things even though it is cold in my crafting room. I am entering this card in the Word Art Wednesday challenge.

Ooooh! I love your faux stuff! The masking tape branches are a great idea - I love the wrinkly texture there... and the crackle technique is one I have yet to try - that turned out so cool! Love how you use the neutrals to tone down your warm colors. Very cool - thanks for playing along!

This is amazing. I like the faux barn board and the blossoms. I had some thin strips of brown paper bag that I twisted to make stems, and it worked beautifully. As usual you have a winner. Thank you for posting this outstanding project with us.
