Sugar Creek Hollow - Mixed Media Challenge

Hi there,
so tickled I was able to complete a card I've been working on in time to enter
  Sugar Creek Hollow's Challenge - Mixed Media! 
I have just fallen in love with all the creative ways to do this... shouldn't have said "all" because the creativity in this media is endless!!
I have so many different layers and stuff on here - and the flower center is a clay figure from a mold
 I actually created (-:
Not sure how to will give you the supplies as I applied them...kinda of ... LOL
Base Cardstock is black 5 x 7
Started with scrap piece of Olive cardstock and stamped some various flowers using Memento Cottage Ivy. This is actually at the top of the card but got lost as I continued to add stuff...added scraps of various designer paper...lightly applied gesso to tone down the designer paper and then stenciled them using Dylusion stencils and GKD's Powder Blue ink. Using Faber Castell's Bold pens (pink, blue, purple, green and cream) I added back some color to designer paper. Then to get some shimmer, I used Ink Gold's Rosenquartz across the card lined up with piece of paper to give light lines and more "light"....also applied this stuff to the white paper flower.  Earlier last week I had make some molds using Amazing Putty and using WOW Embossing powder and a lavendar embossing powder, created my flower center. Then applied Ink Gold's Silver to its center  (shout out to Jennie Harper - we were together when I learned how to do this!)

Here is a close up - sentiments are rub-on's that were in my stash, pearls were done with Viva Pearl Pen and ribbon I think is THoltz (and I am almost out!!!) and burlap stash (cut with THoltz Tattered Flower die)
I love it....thinking I may keep this one KWIM

hugs and blessings everyone....
sure miss visiting but right now time is just so very tight
I was thrilled to get this card done

see you soon, promise

STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop - Inspiration Challenge

Hi there,
 Welcome to our June STV Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop...if you are hopping you should have come from the awesome blog of sweet team mate Karen Knegten ......

This month we were challenged to use this gorgeous inspiration from Vicki Dutcher ...

I absolutely fell in love with this! 
Many times I receive emails and comments on how much they like what I create but don't have "the time" me...I don't have the time either when I saw this from Vicki...whooo hoooo!
I printed it and let it be the main focus on my project below....I had already started this $1.00 notebook some time ago by painting it using acrylic blue paint and stamped a vine with gesso! But it has sat in my "to finish" pile for quite some time... But when I saw this photo, it was perfect for my notebook.
   I added the printed photo, stash lace, GKD organdy ribbon with Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. Then stamped the bird and sentiment from GKD's Birds and Blossoms by Theresa Momber using Memento Black.  There is also a leaf stamp added from the GKD Stamp Kit "Signs of Autumn" using Memento Danube Blue. Colored the bird...DONE!

so no time! well, this took 20 minutes!!! Let this gorgeous photo inspiration do the work for you (-:

Bird colored with Copics: B23, 29, E04, Y17, YG95 and G09...outlined edges by very lightly sponging with Memento Grape.

Hope you were inspired - this one is an easy one to recreate!

Next stop is our talented teammate (and a grandma again!) Miesje Flach...
