Embrace Life Card Tutorial by Dina Kowal

We have a fabulous Mixed Media card from Dina Kowal to share today.

Dina uses the G1810 Church & MC176 Mini Messages for her card.

I had a leftover background from my last spray painting session with my daughter, so I used that for my background - that is done on a cereal box, with several layers of spray paint. The pattern is made by laying a stencil into the wet paint, and removing it - this pulls away one layer and reveals whatever colors are beneath.

 The image is from Impression Obsession (G1910 Church), and it's colored with Polychromos Pencils & oderless mineral sprits and Liquitex Paint markers on a sheet of canvas.

 The sentiment is from an I.O. clear set (MC176 Mini Messages) and is stamped on a 1-inch Art Square from Inchie Arts.

Have a great day!
