Mixed Bunch gets Spritzed and Sponged

Less is More this week is the dreaded one layer and we've been asked to use a coloured card base.  Yeh I thought, Kraft looks great with embossing or colouring on, but no before you rush in check the small print!  No white, cream/ivory , black or yep you guessed it KRAFT!!

So I've chosen Bashful Blue for my card base.  I spritzed it with some Marina Mist and a little Frost White Shimmer Paint.  I then stamped the sentiment from Curly Cute in Night of Navy.  I chose this gorgeous intricate flower from Mixed Bunch and embossed in silver.  I used my Blender Pen to add some Night of Navy to the centres.  I sponged around the edges with Marina Mist and Night of Navy.  To finish a single a Basic Rhinestone to the main flower.

It's not my usual style but I thought it would be interesting to combine a grungy/vintage look with this sophisticated elegant flower.  What do you think?

I have another idea so may be back before the week is out!

Hope you've had a great day.  Britains Got Talent and The Voice are on tonight.  That's my viewing for this evening all sorted!

Take care.  Will be round to visit you later.  x
