Let love grow in your Midnight garden - AALL&CREATE


Today I am sharing a card I have made with wonderful products from AALL & Create. The base is a one layer mixed media card and I've started off on a piece of cardboard where I already had some left over paints on & a light residue of modeling paste through Kassa's stencils. 

You can see the subtle texture which I have highlighted with some Finnabair Opal Magic paints. This was basically a piece of cardboard that I rolled on left over paints decided to see what I could do with it now that it developed that "patina" of paints :) 

I stamped some texture on it with Staz-ON Royal Purple and stamp set 109 from Tracy Evans. It is a giant A4 set but you can quite easily cut those 2 images apart and have a bit more flexible use that way. I created a border of texture and then went to work with flowers from another set. 

These are flowers from Katy's set 127 and the stamp positioner is a great tool to have to create crisp images in patterns all over your card. These are stamped with Staz-ON Midnight Blue. 
I wanted the images to be blurred around the edges so I took a baby wipe and dabbed a bit of staz-on cleaning solution on it and lightly rubbed the edges to move the color & blur the hard lines. 

The blurred edges gives it a nice dreamy effect. In the middle I left room for a large flower from Tracy's stamp 120.

I've stamped that in with staz on midnight blue and rubbed along the edges of the flower to make the petals look lighter. For highlights I have used a white gel pen. 

I've matted it and added the sentiment "love grows here" from stamp set 123 by Tracy. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock. 

It's a card to send to someone to remind them of the importance of self care. Let love grow in your midnight garden so it can bloom during day time too.
