This is for the mixed medium challenge of last week....to use all colours rom one side of the colour wheel (either the cool or warm side) and then add one touch of colour from the opposite side. I chose the cool side and my tulip flowers are the pop or warm colour. Dina's video tutorial was amazing and I followed it closely for this card. Started out with white cardstock, used turquoise, sky blue and lavender acrylic paint dots and spread them with a paint brush. Then spread some pearly white acrylic paint on a round mesh plastic and applied to the dry painted surface. Lavender paint to bubble wrap and applied that. When all was dry, I inked a crackle background stamp with black Memento ink and stamped. I also used a stitch border stamp around all sides. The tulip was stamped, coloured with copics and fussy cut and glued to the card.

Very cool, and you did a great job! I finally found my round canvas - I tried stamping with it but I had brayered the paint too thin, so it did nothing at all! You can use them as masks for sprays too - that's a fun look. Thanks for playing along with the challenge this week!
