I have really been enjoying the Creative Gym at the Mixed Media Challenge! Exercise #5 plays with a black background and adding color to the palette. I used this as time to play and create a card for someone special.
I painted the background with black gesso and then stenciled with black embossing paste the numbers. I let that dry and added splashes of bright green and light blue paint across the surface. I used the stencil to dab the green paint over the letters. I stamped the sentiment in the green paint. I then mounted it on a black card.
