Hi, Cindi! What a cute, artistic card! Love the colors you used! ♥
lol...I don't think I would have put much thought into the word gross until you pointed it out....love the artsy feel of your card.
I know you didn't intend the leaves to be transparent but I really like how they look over the text. The flowers are fabulous. And you are too funny pointing out that you covered grow and leftgross showing. Absolutely beautiful.
I love the colors you used for this card. The flowers look so pretty on the dictionary page.
Love this!! Very pretty:)
Very pretty and love the effect of the text. Good idea to outline the leaves with black. Looking forward to giving this challenge a try.
Project - WSW13 Read All About It! Sample Note Card

I made this note card for my WSW13 Read All About it challenge. It didn't turn out quite like I planned, but I'm ok with it. I stamped the solid green leaves with paint, thinking they would be opaque. But, I used Claudine Hellmuth studio paint, which I forgot is transparent! Oh well. They weren't showing up that well so I outlined them with the black pen.
Since I didn't get my contrast between opaque and transparent that I had set out for, I went with matte and shimmery. The Silks Acrylic Glazes are nice and shimmery. I messy colored the flower details with matte Sakura Souffle pen.
I painted the blue mat layer to match the flower centers. I'm really loving the Silks Acrylic Glaze! It's paint, so it covered the color completely, but it's very light, not stiff like paint and I can still see the texture of the cardstock (it was the front of a DCWV card). The blue mat is layered on a kraft card, which is a little hard to see in the photo. I thought kraft matched the old dictionary paper best.
I was introduced to Silks at an Art Journaling class. I'll post the pages we made soon.

TFL! I hope you'll try some stamping on text this week!
(I wish I spent a little more time planning out the flower placement, I covered “grow” and left “gross” staring out in the open, haha!)
