Mixed Media card for Off The Rails challenge

I joined in over at Off The Rails Scrapbooking for the first time. I took the time to read the About Us section of the blog and was definitely inspired. There's nothing like a good challenge! The idea is go outside your comfort zone - off the rails, so to speak! So I did.

I created a card with a little mixed media. I definitely got messy and I went through waaaaay to many baby wipes and paper towels. 

I really loved creating the background. 
I applied gesso with a stencil and then heat embossed Copper Tinby Metallic Melts.
I added a felt doily and made a tag. 
I used gelatos in Gold Champagne, Tangerine and Metallic Melon on a gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboard heart
and stamped with Distress Ink in Tea Dye.

I feel the flower cluster is probably a bit too 'clean' for the card but I too scared that I might ruin the card - so I left it at that. 

This is Off The Rails Scrapbooking mood palette for November that inspired my card. Have a go!

  5. Thank you for going Off The Rails, I love your card and the contrast between the back ground and the clean flower cluster (as you put it). You did a wonderful job and I hope to see you again at Off The Rails Scrapbooking
