Snippets and Spectrum Noir AquaTints ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.
Thank you all so very, very much.  You are so good for this middle aged girl’s soul.  Your lovely and wonderful comments feed my soul and make me happy.  I wish we could all get together in real life because you are all awesome and so very much appreciated.  I have another card to share with you today and here it is …

Another A6 card 
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
I’ve mixed thick acrylic paint & ink to create a colourful texture paint
I’m enjoying doing mixed media experiments right now
That’s Crafty Challenge All That Glitters sparkle from bling & skittles

I am back to 'must use these snippets and old stash mode'.  The card and paper was coloured at the end of last month and I am trying to use my stash of coloured and pimped papers before I create or colour any more.  If you want to know how I coloured the diamond shape snippets and the stamped flower please see this post.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x

Wow Karen, this card is stunning! I am loving those diamonds, they look like tile or something expensive. I love the coloring on them and the way you have put the gems around them. That flower is so pretty too. I think I am going to have to go see how you made those diamonds! Hugs Brenda

How very effective Karen, Cas and inky all in one is not easy to achieve but you nailed it here.

Many thanks for joining in at Allsorts and FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges and hope you have a good weekend.
