YOU see the best in me -

Saturday June 10, 2017
 
So last Saturday my friend Karen and I went to the Scrapbook/card Expo a few towns over from us..
 
We took a class there from Art Anthology.. I like her style of card.. (she said she really doesn't make cards but for the class she did.. she does canvas mixed media art.. beautiful art pieces) In fact I should of taken a photo of the card we made but I did not make it into a card. I just pinned it to my Bulletin Board as the large flower that is on it will never make it in the mail and I just liked it too much so keeping it. Maybe some other time I will photo it..
 
We did have three cards to make but only got the one I am not showing 75% done. The other two just the water color inked. So this is one of them.. The background is sprays from Art Anthology which are beautiful and I used a couple teals, a yellow and a green. I just dried it and brought it home. So now it was hummm what will I create with this inked piece????
Well I bought one of her stencils and so I took my Nuvo paste in pink and silver and went all over the stencil then lifted it off.. WA-LA.. this is what I got. As it dried it got prettier and prettier... So I cut it down a little and added it to black card stock. I then used My Favorite Things YOU die and laid it out and heat embossed in white the sentiment and layered it over the YOU.. I added some Stampin up sequins/pearls..  Wow I hope you can see the shine and pretty colors behind.. This card is so pretty..
Now what will I do with the other card base???
