A Happy Hoedown Return...Yaaaaay!!

OH Hambo Hoedown!!!.....I have missed you sooooo.... but, Yaaaaaaay.....your'e back.!! The challenges are once a month, there are two free digis up for grabs so come and join in the fun of the new  Hambo Hoedown Challenge where this months theme is flowers.
Oooooohh I can't stop experimenting with mixed media backgrounds, they are so much fun to do, I admit I am not an expert yet like Dyan Reaveley, Magda Polakow, or France Pappilon (bowing down in admiration!!) but we all have to start somewhere eh!!.
I started the background of this card with a layer of crackle glaze, then spread on some cream acrylic paint, it is always magical to see the cracks appear!! then I stencilled on the honeycomb using acrylic paints, then outlining it with a charcoal pencil, added some painted drywall tape, then finished off with some sewing (my new love too!!).
The flower is the GERANIUM  digi image from Hambo Stamps


  1. LOVE this card!! So beautiful! You are doing great with your mixed media - I bow down :)

  2. LOVE this and your background is amazing (esp the honeycomb - so cool)! I know what you mean about the all-stars - they're some of my faves too.
