2 of us in Mixed media style!

Hello to all!
Happy last day of the year! Good Bye 2017!

Today I want to share a romantic style LO in MM style with a theme "US"!

I had fun experimenting with rose stencil one to focus on the couple with romantic mood. I think this is perfect for the theme because roses represent the symbol of love, romantic feelings!

And do you know that
A Lavender rose like color conveys enchantment. It also expresses "love at first sight". Darker shades of lavender roses (close to purple) convey a sense of regal majesty and splendour. These roses are used to express fascination and adoration, so I interpret my theme title "2 of us" with the purple rose background!

This is the part of my DT post for Expressions Craft Stamps too!

Process with close up pics

1. What I did, First I used my purple color gelato and mixed it with Transparent gloss texture paste in different tones from light to darkest, as shown in the pic.

2. Using roses stencil I carefully created the rose background on my texture white sheet and keep it aside to let it dry thoroughly or if you are impatient, you can heat embossed it. Because of the transparency, the line texture appears so clearly with it. Now I added leaves to my roses with green glitter paste. Some of the mixed paste was left so without wasting it, I  randomly applied it using my palette knife from top to bottom as shown in the pic.

3. Using 2 shades of blue color tones gelato I mixed it in water and color the leftover white part lightly.
4. On the designer oval frame, I first colored it with black chalk paint and then applied different shades of Opal magic art medium.

5. I covered the couple chippie piece in yellow chalk paint and the flag banner with quotation 2 of us with black and highlighted with opal magic acrylic paint.

6. Now added the crochet lace and a die cut Victorian lace in black color.
7. Now embellished it with a lot of flowers, stickers, charms and I added my own handmade circle leaves in wire too.

8. In the last, I added that banner with a brad and a hanging charm and a metal butterfly

 and highlighted them too. Added Just us chit chat stickers in black with some crystal gems and lots of tiny thermocol balls in white for more textures and some splatters.

I hope you all enjoyed this MM card with lots of textures and fun!!!!
