1.  To make this card a Mixed Media White Paper panel was covered with Gesso, then painted with a mixture of Matte Medium, Primary Cyan, Titanium White and Interference.  While still wet, a couple of drops of Primary Yellow were added to the extra paint left over, blended and randomly painted onto the panel.  This combination made a real pretty green.
2.  After it was dry the background was stamped with Jet Black StazOn using the peeled paint stamp from the Toxic Set.  Queen Annes Lace was stamped across the bottom.
3.  Once the ink was dry, Gesso was painted in the center and Queen Annes Lace was stamped with Jet Black, watercolored and glued onto a white card with 3 in 1 Glue.
4.  The sentiment from the Spring Sentiments Perfectly Clear Set on white paper with black and diecut using the Fitted Frames A Set and layered onto a larger black frame.

Now hop on over to the other Designers blogs to see what they have for you today!
