Mini Memory for Carol

Worked on another mini memory for the DreamCreateInspire Group. Carol choose the theme of bird houses/birds and the colors White, mint green and light mauve (or light pink). Started with a canvas board and colored with mint green Fabrico ink and heat set.
Placed part of a Tim Holtz mask over the surface and thickly sponged on pearl white Lumiere paint. As it dried, heated with heat tool to get some bubbling texture where the paint was thickest along the edges.
Stamped on some swirls with the same mint green Fabrico ink and let dry.
To lighten the green a bit, watered down some pearl acrylic paint and brushed over the surface, let dry.
Very faintly colored the raised edges of the Lumiere painted areas with pink Fabrico ink.
Changed the coloring of some vintage images, printed them out, cut and adhered to the canvas along with some white lace, paper flowers with mini rhinestone in center, some white beads cut in half and a white metal brad to the girls hair.

Great job Carol. I love the look of the piece and am sure Carol will too. Glad to see you used a couple of items that are a bit different than the colour scheme as I did too.
