Holiday Workshop Class Inspiration: Just Because (stain glass, faux fresco)

I have had so much fun taking the Online Card Class Holiday Workshop. Today’s card was inspired by day 3 and day 3 and day 6, incorporating a few different techniques into one card…. The background was created using some dry embossing, copics and a picket fence stain over the top (faux fresco technique)….  And the flower was made using the stain glass technique by coloring with distress markers.

I needed to tone down the color of the card stock base so I applied some more Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top for a white wash look. Added stickles to the center of the flower.   I so love the Hero Arts flower. 4 come in the set so you definitely get your monies worth…. I am going to enter this into their current monthly challenge.

I hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by.
