Friends share coffee

Here is the third of my mixed media background cards, if you haven't see the others they can be seen here and here.

This background started as a bister mop up over which I applied crackle paint through a stencil and let it dry.

The colours weren't vibrant enough for what I wanted to I took a couple of dylusions misters and gave a couple of fairly quick sprays.

Still not happy with it I then brayered over a little white gesso lightly so that it mostly caught the raised areas, but you can see it picked up some of the coloured inks and created an effect I really quite liked. I gave it a coat of matte medium to seal it.

To finish off I made up one of Tim's take away coffee cups, added some collage bits and die-cut the friends celebrate words.

All I had to do then was put it all together.

Again I know just the person for this card.

Have a great week.
