Treasure friendship card

Hi , I'm back with another card to share with you today. I've been pretty busy these past few weeks completing my wreath orders , but I'm in limbo right now waiting for my supplies to arrive! What better way to use my downtime than to take part in a few of my favorite challenges,right??

This week over at Frosted Designs, we are challenged to use splatter on our projects.. yes!!!! I love adding splashes of color to my cards and layouts!! The DT has some great projects to get your creative mojo going!
I'm using the current sketch over at Mojo Monday as the starting point for my card... here's the sketch;

Isn't it such a fun sketch?? Love it!!!
This is what I came up with for both challenges..........
I used leftover papers from Prima Time Traveller and My Mind's Eye Portabella Road collections . I mixed some Primary Elements by LuminArte in Emperor's Gold with Prima Art basics 3D Gloss Gel and then stencilled the grunge part of a Prima stencil along sides of the dark paper and then because I still quite abit of the mixture leftover , I grabbed my Tim Holtz  Doily stencil and covered the smallest mat. In RL this gold looks stunning, I assure you! It looks rather orange-y here, but it is much softer and has a very lovely golden shine. I had to stamp, of course, so I used a grungy background stamp from Crafty Individuals on the second mat and then I stamped randomly a word script ( Prima) over the same mat and on the top layer., using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. The lovely flowers are brand new to my stash , Magnolia  flowers. The butterfly and word stickers and ephemera are Tim Holtz Idea-ology . The burlap circle is from a scrap of burlap that I modpodged , cut out and inked the edges. I outlined the words , and just about everything else with a watered down brown Gelato color stick. Finally, I splattered the entire card with  white Gesso and this card is done!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!
