Simple textured card

Just wanted to stop by and share a quick card that I created a while ago for Crafty Crusader. I had a pile of cards to create for friends and family. I have also been trying to use up left over bits and pieces from various kits that I have been using lately. 

However I came to the end of a kits and just didn't quite have enough to create the base for the card. So I decided to use some Pebeo modelling paste and a small piece of Canson pasteboard to create a base. 

Here's the finished card.

I started with using some Pebeo modelling paste and a clock mask that I had in my stash.  Once the modelling paste was dry I then gave the whole thing a coat of gesso to give it a good even base to paint over. I then created a wash of hot pink by mixing some Pebeo paints till I got the desired colour with water and then randomly ran the paint brush over the base whilst using a heat gun to dry it off at the same time. This helped create the rough base look. 

When the first colour wash was dry I then highlighted a few areas with a grey wash and then highlight some of the hot pink areas as you can see about. Then the whole base was stamped randomly with a script stamp and inked, which has highlighted the rough look of the modelling paste.  

The whole thing was then matted with some matching card stock and then adhered to a black card base. Then it was just a case of adding in a  journal card, some matching stamped butterflies and some sequins and the card was finished.
