Mixed Media Card for Creative Expressions

This week I looked at the products we got in our April DT pack and decided I wanted to use the two gorgeous mists that we received along with the stamp set. I love the intense colors in this, and just went to town adding lots of Creative Expressions metal embellishments!

I started with a 5 inch square base of card. I embossed the Ivy Corner stamp in Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder and Pefect Medium. I then sprayed the Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Ink Spray Mist in Buttercup and the Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mist in Arctic Blue onto the background letting them blend together a little. I also sprayed the gorgeous Spellbinder Bitty Blossom flowers with the same gorgeous colors and made a lovely flower cluster across the card, using the contrasting colors to make them stand out.

To finish off the card I used lots of Creative Expressions embellishments. I added a fun bow using the May Arts Burlap String, and added Creative Expressions Fancy Key Charm on top of it. To finish off my corners I used the Victorian Metal Corners . As a final little detail I added the ladybird stamp from the Ivy Corner set in Jet Black Archival Ink in a few places crawling around my flower cluster.

I love the intense colors on this card and I hope you do!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
