"Friend": A Mixed Media Card

Hi everyone.I'm checking in today with one more look at our beautiful April MMM Kit from C'est Magnifique. Today I have a mixed media card to share with you!

"Friend" Card
I started by creating the base of my card using the Riddersholm Design papers from the main kit. I glued on some layers of paper and book pages and then covered them with gesso. Following that, I applied masking with the April MMM kit mask and modeling paste; set with heat gun.

Next, using a palette knife I applied the Lumiere paint over some of the masked areas for pops of color. Once dry, I proceeded to spray (from a distance) the Lindy's Stamp Gang mist and then toss on some mist splats. Inka Gold was applied to the edges of my card.

Embellishing came last. I wanted some funky accents for this card, so I applied white paint to the Blue Fern Studios chipboard and then added some of the rub-ons from the MMM kit. The Prima resin frame was accented with the Lumiere paint and then backed up by a Prima Cartographer wood embellishment. Some vintage lace trim from my stash added texture to the linear arrangement behind my embellishments.
