Card with Flower Garden by Tim Holtz

It's Monika here again
with a floral card.
You know the theme of our May challenge
 over at Country View Challenges: 

So here is my card with Tim's flowers.

Right now I just want to show you how you can make a background like this.

I painted blue a heavy weight cardstock (300gms/140lb).

After drying I stencilled with Tim's Burlap stencil and modelling paste.

After drying I took a toothbrush and grey paint, and I painted some stripes onto the card.

After I smeared Amsterdam white acrylic paint. You don't have to thin this acrylic paint with water because - I'm sorry to say this - there's hardly any pigment in it.

For the flowers I used Ranger Silver Pearl embossing powder and I coloured with watercolour technique.

What I used:

DecoArt Americana paint (Spa Blue, Neutral Grey, White Pearl)
Amsterdam acrylic paint (Zinc White)
Ranger embossing powder (Silver Pearl)
Ranger Distress marker (Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn)
