Just a Mixed Media Note!

Today I have my Mixed Media Color Challenge project to share.  Mona and Sue have us using yellow, orange and kraft/brown, along with at least 2 mediums.
I decided to just make a Mixed Media card this week - keeping it on a small scale!  My card is a standard 
4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
 I used modeling paste with a stone wall stencil on my kraft panel base. After it dryed - I sprayed it all over with yellow ink spray that turned it yellow where I sprayed lightly and orangey where I sprayed heavily.  I stamped  text and chicken wire stamps in black ink.  I brushed Clear Distress Crackle Paint over the whole thing and left it to dry.  Then I rubbed some yellow and orange acrylic paint over it with a paper towel to tone down the shine a bit!  It also helped accent the crackle as you see below.



 I painted the wooden flower and leaf with yellow acrylic paint.  I used a Sentiment Strips die for the sentiment, adhering it and the flower with foam tape
To finish it off I added some orange enamel dots, layered the panel to a slightly larger orange panel and then to my kraft card base!
