Just Us Girls #197 Mixed Media

I had so much fun with the last background that I made with mixed media that I had to give it another try.  I made this background with Gina K. Designs Turquoise Sea and Ocean Mist inks spritzed with a little water.  I swirled my cardstock in it and let it dry. I then painted it with white acrylic paint mixed with water.   I've had this color combo stuck in my head and knew I wanted to use Turquoise Sea and Sweet Corn cardstock.  I had some acrylic paint that almost matched Sweet Corn, so I splattered it across the panel with a toothbrush.  I used Spellbinders Office Supplies dies.  The larger die was cut using GKD Casual Friday paper.  The two tags were cut using white cardstock and sponged with Sweet Corn.  The beautiful Hibiscus was colored with Copic markers.
