Mixed Media /Stencil/ White on White with a touch of Gold

 Hi there. I'm pretty much up to date with all my DT cards, so today I had a play. 

First up is a Mixed Media Card. I wanted to use some crackle paste on this card, but when I opened the tub, I found it had dried up:( So instead, this is what I did...

I inked up a very old Flourishes stamp with Distress Oxide inks, liberally spritzed and stamped several times on the watercolour paper. 

When dry, I randomly stamped part of an equally old Hero Arts
stamp with white ink and then embossed with Silver Pearl embossing powder. 
The panel was then die-cut and the edges sponged with the darker ink. 
 The dragonfly was stamped with DO ink, blended with Nuvo Glitter Gloss Pen and fussy-cut. 
The sentiment was  stamped on a die-cut panel. 
To finish I arranged the dragonfly on some die-cut floral stems and layered with some twine and the sentiment. 
Stamps: Gina K Beautiful Wings; Flourishes Bees & Blooms: Stampers Anonymous Natures Wonder;
Hero Arts friends Background
Dies: Stampin Up Meadow Dies; Penny Black Rectangle
My next card was a lot more simple and classic...

I began by die-cutting the leafy wreath and then liberally splattered it with Altenew Gold Metallic  Paint. 
The white panel was embossed with an old Papertrey Ink Coverplate for a bit of texture. I then stamped the sentiment and sponged the edges with the gold ink. To finish The wreath was adhered with dimensional tape and some pearls added for a bit of bling.

Die: Poppy Stamps Adriana Wreath
Stamp: Kaisercraft


My last card was made with a kit from Uniquely Creative...

The background was stencilled with Distress Ink. 
The flowers were stamped with black ink, clear embossed and coloured with Zig Markers. 
The sentiment is made from wood and was covered in black ink and clear embossed to match the flowers. 
I added some splatter and sequins to finish.
