Mixed Media Challenge

 Thank you for stopping by today.  this is my mix media card I made for a friend's birthday.

For this card I used a background paper that I made with my Gelli Plate and several colours of acrylic paint. These are my favourite colours, blue, orange and yellow.

The butterfly is cut out with a die out of scrap papers from a previous project. I added some crackle paint and coloured it with Alcohol Inks.  The centre of the butterfly is a icicle from a Christmas candle I had in my stash.

The Explore sentiment is a stamp from  Inkadinkado  that I coloured with my Copic markers .  The clock is a die from Sizzix , Tim Holtz collection. To complete the card I added a brad and some metal pieces.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
