Mixed Media Sweet Peas

 Hi Friends,
Since I had torn out pages of my Altered Book to make room to I had an abundance of pages and decided to use it for my card...how much fun!!  I started by laying down a coat of Gesso on the page.  Then I stamped and embossed the image with Gold Tinsel EP and watercolored it.  You can find all the details of the card here at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I love the look of the text in the background.  Hope you are doing something creative everyday.....it just makes me HAPPY! :)

Happy Stampin'
Jill

What a fabulous idea Jill, and a great use of all those torn out pages! I love the subtle look you got from applying gesso over the printed page, it makes a wonderful background.
Cheers,
Beccy
