My Friend - Mixed Media Card

Merry Christmas!!
We had a great day of gift-giving, napping, playing games, talking on FaceTime and
of course, ending the day with a great meal. It was different not being with our families, but
it was also really nice to have a quiet Christmas... You know? 

Anywhoo... Here is another card made with this month's Greenhouse Society stamp set:
Hibiscus. 


I started making this card by spraying a few different colours of Dylusions Ink Sprays on 
Watercolor paper and then misted it with a little bit of water. 
After the paper was dry I stamped the flower, then added some shading with 
a  pastel-chalk pencil.


Then, to make the flower stand out even more, I covered it in glossy accents and let
it dry overnight.
