I had so much fun creating this card. I tried to get a sort of modern, retro look with some texture on the background.

I swiped the ink pads across the white cardstock, overlapping a little bit between colors to get the secondary colors. After that, I sprayed it with some water, let it sit for a couple seconds, and then dabbed off the water with paper towel. I dried the background panel with craft heater.

Next, I taped the Squares Flexi Template on the background panel and then, I sprayed some more water and dabbed it off with paper towel to get the square ghosting look. I dried it with craft heater.

I put the templates back on and then sprayed some of the mixed media paint spray. This pray has some metallic residue in it that gives the metallic shiny look on the background. I removed the flexi-template off the backgroud panel and then dried it completely with craft heater.

I trimmed the background panel into a square shape. I wrapped some natural twine ribbon around it in the center of the panel, and then I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bloomfully Faith stamp set with black pigment ink in a white cardstock, trimmed it into a flag label banner, and then I punched the other side with small hole punch. I added the sentiment banner on the card, and tied it up with the twine. I put a dot of permanent glued at the back of it so it will stay on top of the twine.

I love how this CAS mixed media card turned out. Simple, yet has some texture and dimension.
