Hello friend

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone~
I hope you are having a great day! It has been so nice here...sunny and in the mid 60's! I can't believe how warm it's been for November.  I'm not complaining ....but wow! To celebrate, I decided to share a fun, bright and sunny card today!  I had some time in my craft room and couldn't wait to play in some fun challenges going on:
So, here is what I have for you today~
 I am sharing a fun, shabby chic, mixed media card that was a little outside my box~ I had fun playing around with some inks, paints and texture paste and really love my end result! Yup, I will definitely be using more of this product and getting messy again, lol!
I have a few panels that I cut and layered on my base.  I created the next few layers doing a water colored background with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Victorian Velvet distressed inks, water and acrylic white paint. I then used Tim Holtz Splatters stencil and the Burlap Layering stencils along with texture paste to create a textured background.
Tucked beneath the frame which is created with Spellbinders Card Creator 5x7 Reflective Moment die is Memory Box Chloe Stems and cheesecloth.  After cutting the frame out, I applied a layer of gesso, let that dry and then added a few coats of crackle paint. Once that was dry, I added some distressed ink..super fun and love the effect!
The "hello" is My Creative Time~Fun Notes stamp/die set. The hello was cut out of foam and then card stock two times for dimension. The butterflies are My Creative Time~Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly dies, embossed with white shabby embossing enamel. I fussy cut the small banner and stamped "friend" using the same stamp set. The daffodil ribbon is from 3 Girl Jam. The green jute string and flowers are from my stash and the leaves are My Creative Time~Stitched Leaves die. I then took a mixture of acrylic white paint and water, mixed that together and with the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush, created splatter effects to finish my card.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Frilly and Funkie Challenge-What a Mesh ( used cheesecloth)
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #163 Anything Goes
4.) Scrapy Land Challenge #53 Anything Goes-use Brand die Scrapy Land sells
(Memory Box)
