Mixed Media Rose

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Here's to a creative 2018

And with that out of the way, I would like to welcome all of you to TheGrandStampede. We start this new year with a few challenges that I will be posting. I have been busy behind the scenes even though I haven't posted in two weeks. So here is the first challenge of the year at House of Cards! Before I get to the challenge here is my card for today, enjoy!

Mixed media seems to be a creative challenge for me.
But in this case, I think I did pretty well.
The rose was done some time ago and I put it on the
back burner for another project.
After several attempts at a card I settled down with this design.

Mixed Media and/or Colors

I used embossing paste colored with acrylic paint on top of a painted panel that was done, again, some time ago.
The wooden hearts were painted a pale yellow color.
I thought the sentiment was perfect for New Year's Day.
The string of bling on the bottom added shine and sparkle.
Well, that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at House of Cards. It should be fun! Until then take care and happy crafting.

On a side note: For those of you who know me you will know I am a big Buffalo Bills fan! They made the playoffs for the first time since 1999!
So...
Go Bills!

Lovely card and with some great texture too, I must try colouring my paste and see if I can make something as good as this.

I love the pretty shading in your rose, Shawna! Just beautiful! Since MY team, the Green Bay Packers, are NOT in the playoffs, I will be happy to root for the Bills this year! Hoping you AND the Bills have a terrific 2018!
Take Care!
Michele
