Making a statement out of neutrals...in 15 minutes


Neutral-mixed-media-card

Two nights ago I decided to challenge myself to make a "statement card out of neutrals". *winks*


1. Choose residual-misted card base from stack - 1 minute
2. Select a stencil, get light modeling paste and apply to card base with a palette knife - 4 minutes
3. Pick out neutral embellishments and arrange them in a pleasing manner - 4 minutes



4. Apply matte medium + mica flakes - 1 minute
5. Adhere embellishments to card base with hot glue gun - 4 minutes
6. Round corners of card and admire handiwork - 1 minute



I'm not sure if it makes a statement but I think it turned out quite pretty. What do you think? 


Playing along with Fusion Card Challenge. I used the sketch.

I'd say, "Pretty Spectacular!". I love how the neutrals really make the design composition stand out. You certainly have a speedy artistic eye. I usually take so much time changing my mind that I would never finish anything like that in a few minutes. Love the mica on the flower!

Beautiful! Do you work over wet modeling paste, or was there a gap where you stopped the timer between steps 2 and 3 and/or 4 and 5?
