Just Us Girls #197

This weeks Just Us Girls challenge is a technique challenge to use any Mixed Media on your project.  This is all new to me, and I have to admit that I was a little intimidated.  So, I watched a video and decided to give it a try.  To create my background, I used fired brick and tumbled glass distress inks.  I applied white acrylic paint over that and then added a touch of spun sugar distress ink.  I tried to splatter some pink and blue acrylic paint with a toothbrush, but really think I got more on my work table than on my card.  I stamped the poofy flower with VersaMark ink and embossed in white.  I added the greeting, stem, leaves and grass.  This panel was attached to a piece of GKD Moonlit Fog cardstock and then to a Bubblegum pink card base.
