So now I have got you up to date with my boring stuff it's mega time for some creating and of course I have another card for you (still trying to keep with my 2 a month). I have a lot of other stuff to show but this one I did for the Frilly and Funkie square challenge (I always do square cards lol).
I have done a step by step and you can find the product list at the end of the post.

Anything But Cute Challenge Blog - This beautiful mood board regarding celebrating our Earth.
I'm inspired by the colour and for me when I think of celebrating the Earth I am always inspired not just by the ground but by the wonderful skies through all the seasons.
My card :-)
Step By Step
I cut a piece of watercolour card and added crackle paste through the clouds stencil and texture paste through the dot fade
Next I used Distress stains with plenty of water in several layers - first broken china and tumbled glass
This was the first layer dry
Next blueprint sketch and salty ocean with water
This was then dried
Next blueprint sketch and mermaid lagoon.
This is it dried.
Now initially I was going to add some sun details but didn't like it so I started to cover it up.
First with the blueprint sketch and picket fence
Then the rest of the other colours added a little bit of water all along.
Then I added more white and sprayed loads of water everywhere to blend.
I wanted some stones so I used more watercolour paper and first Distress spray pumice stone and water
Then distress stain hickory smoke
and finally some brushed pewter stain.
This is it dried.
Next I stamped the brick with watering can
I added stamped rain droplets with mermaid lagoon
I cut the stone with the confetti alteration border die and with black card the umbrella man. Next I did water droplets with the glass effect gel.
Some stamping with the santa boot stamp free with the craft stamper magazine and music from some old Debbie Moore stamps.
I added some black around the clouds and layered on a card blank I made. Not shown is how I splattered mermaid lagoon paint and added the song title by stamping onto white cardstock.
Right I better be off, Wednesday tomorrow so definitely hoping to join WOYWW. Thank you so much for visiting.
Happy Art :-)
