Hi, Lisa here today, sharing a Mixed Media card using the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder and Flower Market plates.

I started out by spritzing my watercolor panel with water, then randomly misted with Dylusions Spray and blotted the excess.  I used the ghosting technique and one of Dyan's stencils to add some interest to the background.  The sweet kids are from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder plate, stamped in Black Archival on White, cut out and sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I added some more stenciling with White Paint and Ranger Distress Ink, once dry, I stamped the flowers and butterflies from Artistic Outpost Flower Market plate.  The butterflies were stamped a second time on scraps and popped up for added dimensions. 

Don't forget to stop back tomorrow for the monthly Artistic Outpost Design Team Hop!
