This is for several challenges!
For starters, Robin's A CASE for Favourites Free 4 All challenge, to case one of the first five cards in our favourites.
Now, I browse the galleries a lot, so I cannot say if this was one of the first 5 I ever added, but chronologically it's the first card in my favourites ~ Cloisonne Sky Roses. I was very happy to revisit the Faux Cloisonne technique, and in addition to my more neutral IC-inspired "pear flowers" I did add some sky ones. It has to be admitted that a motorcycle magazine doesn't offer a lot of colour! But DH was very impressed with the end result.
It's also for Ky's Anything Goes MIX challenge, to revisit one of our favourite earlier challenges. I used MIX53, Lovely Layers, and used the Layered Gesso Background tutorial.
And with both those in mind as things I wanted to do, I picked this Gift Basket from today's IC467 Harry & David inspiration challenge.
Flowers and leaves stamped on magazine pages, embossed with gold and cut out.
For my background I first painted the base layer with gesso. Then I stamped a pear image and text several times with StazOn. Then I painted over that with cream and yellow acrylic paints. When dry I stamped with Wonderfully Worn in Versafine Sepia.
Then I stencilled part of the bottom of the card with modelling paste, coated it with copper EP and heated it. After that I stamped Off the Grid, the sentiment from Verve and the splash from French Foliage. I rubbed in some luster rub-ons, and sponged the edges with tea dye and walnut stain, then edged very lightly with a black Sharpie. It's layered onto a base simply sponged with Tea Dye.

Wow, OMG, and any other exclamation you can think of. This is just such an amazing card. I would have trouble with even one technique while you combined several so beautifully. Not only is this going into my favs, but you should kniw that it stands out as THE FAVORITE for the past several werks.
