Paper craft project no. 375: Blossom like a butterfly mixed media card

I had a little bit of mixed media fun with my stamps, stencils, and tissue paper and created this card. I wasn't up to coloring with markers so I used a technique of coloring them without really coloring. Basically, I applied gesso and Gelatos on my panel, stamped my images and sentiment on tissue paper, and then used gel medium to decoupage the tissue paper onto the panel.

I've got a step-by-step photo tutorial here if you'd like to see exactly how I put this card together :o)

Ingredients:  STAMPlorations stamps (The Birds and the Blooms, Mixed Media Grunge, Blossom Like A Butterfly, Big Numbers Background); ARTplorations stencil (Gridlocked); Liquitex (gesso, matte gel medium, modeling paste); Faber-Castell Gelatos; Ranger Archival Inks; Tsukineko Memento Luxe Inks; Koi Watercolors; Japanese watercolor brush pen.

Linking up my card to these fun challenges:
