Dream...dream...dream.. by Alison (Craftytrog)

Hello Stampers! Craftytrog here again, and I've got a funky card to share with you. I seem to be in a funky phase right now! Lol!
So, here's how it was made...

From the Tim Holtz Lost & Found Stack, take a 6 x 6 piece of floral paper.
Apply black paint through Andy Skinner's Hippy Chick stencil. Bump the stencil slightly to the left, then apply white paint over the top of the girls.
With the stencil in place, stamp some text (Calligraphy Mat 15), then apply a light layer of Citrus paint dabber over that, using a circular motion. I used a stiff stipple brush for this. You can still see the text showing through the paint.
Stamp the flowers from Greetings & Words 1, then add colour with purple paint.
Use a black paint pen to outline the girls.
Randomly stamp script on the background, around the girls, then sponge black paint around the edges.
Stamp the phrases from Discover Your Inner Self, Be Creative, and Greetings & Words 1, onto cream paper. Sponge Broken China Distress Ink over the words, cut them out, then glue in place with glossy accents.
Finish off by attaching the artwork to a 6 x 6 card blank.

Hope you like my funky card,
thanks for looking,
Alison xxx
