The MIX21 challenge is to take a 'too bright' craftatastrophe and use white ink or paint to knock it back and create a flopportunity. Well I have a ready stack of craftastrophe's to pick from...so I picked the brightest...a mix of bright inks on white card and stencilled over it with a mix of acrylic paint and water. Now I really love it. I think it looks like hippy fabric, so I drew faux stitches around the edges (mum thinks it looks like stained glass?!). Almost didn't want to add anything to it to spoil the pretty background, but no point in that, so I die cut some foliage and flowers & just added a tiny sentiment. It is so pretty IRL.
The flowers were stamped with dictionary meanings in blue distress ink, then moulded by hand. Foliage also hand manipulated.

Oh WOW! I LOVE how your background looks with your gorgeous colors and fantastic shapes! Your flowers are beautiful, love the print on them too! Love how you "molded" each petal and leaf, they look amazing! Fabulous card!!!
