Picket Fence

Hello my friends, hope today finds you all safe and well, hugs to those who need them today.

I wanted to do another mixed media card so started by putting papers together, I distressed the edges and wrapped some scalloped lace round before attaching the first layer to my base card, on top of this I added half a doily to the top right corner.

With my second layer I distressed the edges and inked them with Vintage Photo. I inked up some Funky Floral stamps with my versamark ink pad and heat embossed the leaves with Bronze embossing powder and the flowers with Artic lake Lustre followed by Tropic Yellow Lustre, these are a Pale Lilac and Yellow but together they look Green!!!

I made the picket fence out of an alteration tag and painted it with White Gesso, I attached this to the bottom of the card then stamped over the top with a grass stamp using Forest Moss.

On a piece of White card I stamped the Bird using my versamark pad again and heat embossed it with Black embossing powder, I  fussy cut it out ad attached it to my card as seen.

I felt the fence looked too plain so I added a Blue Butterfly that I had stamped and cut onto one of the posts then for the sentiment I die cut a tag, inked with Fossilized Amber and tied some twine through the hole to hand it over another post. I hand wrote the sentiment on the tag as I did not have any sentiment stamps small enough!

I do keep looking at it and thinking I should add something else but as I am not sure what I have decided to leave it be lol!
