21 cards - #12

Hello again.  I'm back with another card for the monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art!

Please refer to this post to see how I made the base for my cards.

I reached into my inspiration jar again for some ideas. My words this time were orange, diamonds, and feet.  I struggled with this one and ended up only using the first two words.  I used gesso twice to cover up my background, because I wasn't pleased with it.  Because the ink underneath was water based, it bled into the gesso a little bit, but I like the muted color.  I also sprayed some orange Dylusions ink spray on and let it drip down the page.

For the diamonds, I used some stamps from Purple Onion Designs.

Since I really didn't know what to do with this card, I finally pulled out a very old SU stamp set, mixed bouquet, and put flowers on.  The flowers are stamped separately and colored with watercolor pencils and a water brush.  They are cut out and glued onto the card.  The stem and leaves are stamped directly onto the card.

I also opted to go without a sentiment for this one.

Thank you so much for spending some time here with me today.

I really like this one. Very vibrant. The diamonds add a nice dimension.

OHHH!! There is a blast from the past! I think I might own that set myself!!
I like the background...soft, but yet kind of edgy

Oh, I remember this darling set! I love how you updated the look by making a collage-y card!
