Mixed Media Thank You Card

Hello Friends!

It feels like years since I have made a card.  It hasn't been lol but it feels that way.  I refocused on scrapbooking-trying to do some memory keeping.  And I have (my next post is proof!).

So I was looking through Pinterest and many things always catch my eye.  So between something there and some cheesecloth-I created this...

I cut some watercolor paper to card size.  I used mod podge fabric glue to adhere the cheese cloth.  Once dry I used some spun sugar distress paint and watered it down and painted it.  I mixed a little spun sugar paint with modeling paste and used a tim holtz stencil.  

I added buttons, a wood clock, a clay butterfly, a wooden lady silhouette-and I painted all of them with the spun sugar.  The thanks sentiment is a flash card from Tim Holtz.  And lastly I added little silver micro beads here, there, and everywhere! :)  No all of them stuck onton the card lol.  

I made this card with a certain friend in mine-so hopefully she likes :)  

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Watercolor Wednesday: WWC218 Marsha's All About Occasions-When someone does something special for me-it is a wonderful occasion for me to make them a card showing appreciation. :)

Here are a couple of closeups:

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...mix it up! :)
