Daisy.....

The weather today, although very cold is bright and sunny....
So here's today's card........
I started by putting versa mark on the back of the circle stencil.
I rubbed this onto CS and then heat embossed it with white EP.
This gave me the resist I was after to water colour the circles with brusho's.
I diluted the brusho's with water to use as a water colour.
I popped the stencil back on and used translucent paste through it.
Whilst the paste was still wet I added micro beads.
This gave the water colour circles a texture and a slight sheen but did not alter the colours.
I die cut a square frame and raised it using foam tape. 
The citrus coloured circle card was cut and popped into the frame.
I die cut the flower several times to get a 3D effect, used brusho's 
and micro beads again to add texture and colour to the centre.
The sentiment was stamped with my Misti several times to get the depth of black.
The flower was attached over the frame and onto the inner card.
I really enjoyed making this CAS, mixed media card.
Amazing how a CAS card can have so many mixed media elements in it too.....
