For my best friend

Hello, how are you,

I finished my spring themed card today. I used 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk & Thoughts Keeper Papers. Must be my favourites from all the sets. Especially I like those yummy elements and element stickers.



At first I used some tissue paper (which is not seen anymore!) with Matte Gel Medium to start off. Then did stenciling, stamping (not seen too!!) and went with the flow - using paint splatters, inks, shimmer mists, chalk mists; did another stenciling with Tim Holtz Doily Stencil again, added metal gloss paint, did heat embossing ... added some string too!!
Then punched the corners, a few brads and stuck the page with double sided tape on the card. Some tulle with 3D Gloss Gel and beautiful Kaisercraft black roses on top. I added green shade for the roses with Inka-Gold Jade to cool that black colour down a bit. Done!

Some close ups:







I would like to enter my card to the following challenges -

Kris
