Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a mixed media card.

I stenciled the background using the Mandala Quad stencil and texture paste. I then glued a piece of textured printed tissue paper to the card with Matte Medium then blended the inks over the surface. I stamped the flower image in Hero arts white ink then used white detail embossing powder. As the tissue paper had a little texture the embossing picked it up, you can see a little cross hatch pattern on the flower head. I stamped and cut out some of the "words to live by" stamp and placed them over the image.

If you want a sentiment stamped on a piece of card to stand out run the edge over the brush tip of a black pen or an ink pad helps define the outline. You can see the black framing each of the words.

This is a "WOW" card Christine. LOVE your design with the mix of stenciling, embossing paste, sponging, heat embossing ... and the fabulous tissue with text. What a cool pattern that added to the flower heads.

I wish I could feel this card. It has so much texture that you just want to feel it in person. I love the look of the texture over the words. It makes the flower look like lace.
