Today's card is for the Mission
quarterly-ish card group
where we receive a mystery item from a hostess
and then create a card with the item!
This mission's mystery item was a beautiful star bright stencil
from Spellbinders and it was sent to both Barb and I from Jeanette.
She also purchased one for herself and
we 3 have the same stencil to create our own versions of cards.
Mine probably should have been a candidate for the Hot Mess card!
I started by taking a sheet of watercolor cold press paper
and did a dry flat wash using Altenew watercolors.
Once it was dry (several hours naturally), I used the Spellbinders
Star Bright stencil over the top, my ranger distress inks and blending
foam brushes from Scrapbook.com.
The last creative part was a dusting of ultra fine glitter after
pouncing the stencil and paper with versamark.
This card has a great New Year's flair with the sparkle and shimmer!
I added the string for a bit more drama
and as a reminder of how we always have streamers and horns
that blow strings each New Year's celebration :)
The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions simple strips Crafty
stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
You can see Barb's card here
and Jeanette's card here.
I'm up next Mission and the item I'll be sending them found me last week!
Honestly, I'm a little scared, LOL!
But a challenge it is!
Stay tuned for that mission -
coming to a blog near you in the Spring '22!
Thanks for stopping by today!
