Hi again guys!
Today, I have a quick little lotus inspired ATC. The supplies I used are listed below.
It all starts with this piece of card stock that a little pot of pain tipped over on. I figured, hey, let's make a background rather than trying to scoop it up. I added more paint and smoothered it all over that piece of cardstock with my palette knife allowing it to keep as much texture as possible and I set it aside. That was months ago and here is it becoming something beautiful!
I added a touch of gray ink to the white areas of the paper and cut it down to ATC size.Next, came a ripped scrap of Asian vintage text.
I then took some of that same vintage paper and inked it a bit with my Niji metalic watercolors in green. I wrote the phrase "No mud - No lotus". It is just something I have always loved. I adhered that to the ATC with a bit of gray scrap under that.
To top it all off came the pretty lotus image fussy cut from my collage sheet. I added a bit of shimmer mist to the whole piece (very hard to see in photos, but oh so pretty in person) and a gentle amount of Stickles to the flowers.
Hope you enjoyed!
Thanks for joining me & have a great weekend!
White card stock - any heavy substrate will do
