Sometimes you've got to tell people how special they are....

Good morning!

A bit of experimenting went on with this card and I had lots of fun getting rather messy!!! - I did remember to take photo's along the way so here we go.

I started with my usual blank white piece of card stock and decided that I wanted to use one of my Sizzix Bigz dies as a stamp so I cut some funky foam with my hearts bigz die and stuck the pieces down on to some doe flex.

I needed to tone down my white card so I blended some tea dye distress ink all over the card.

I painted three different shades of acrylic paint on to my foam hearts, spritzed with water and stamped them out - a lovely effect!

Next it was "Wellington" he needed stamping out and colouring in - I used distress inks with a water brush.

Once the background was dry enough I added some stencil work with distress inks and added some frayed hessian and made some fabric roses with another bigz die that I have. I also cut some more hearts from some wood veneer that matched in colour.

I stamped the lovely sentiment "Sometimes you've got to tell people how special they are, just to make sure they know" and matted that and assembled everything together.

I hope Wellington knows how special he is.........

Wellington is super cute and I would like to enter him in to the following challenges.

Sweet Stampin - Cute and cuddly.

Creative Artist Challenge - Anything mixed media goes.

Thanks for stopping by,
