Here I used a peice of 8 1/2 by 11 white card stock, glued all the papers and tissue paper with matte medium. Then I used craft paint and if some of the paint got onto the paper too much, I just took a baby wipe ( or a moist paper towel if you don't have or ran out of baby wipes) and wiped up some of the paint. After it dried I used some stencils in craft paint. Last step Is I stamped some images lover the papers. The purple one I used the grape leaves, eye and brow, and poodle with glasses stamps. The green ones I used Frog in flowers and Greetings Frog stamps. After I cut everything up I went around the edges with black craft paint.
Now for the card! Bet you think I was never going to show it! ;)
I When I cut down the purple sheet I cut a couple in 4 x6 size. I used this one for the card. I used a Kraft card stock for the card base. I used miracle tape To attach the light purple scrapbook paper to the card base. I then attached my background paper to that using the miracle tape. My mom LOVES Las Vegas! Well my dad does too. They have gone there at least once a year for like forever. When I was looking at the stamps I saw this Slot machine winner, I thought of my mom and had to get it and use it on something for her, either for mothers day or birthday (or both!) Colored the image with Prisma color pencils. Edged the sides with Black soot distress ink. Mounted it with the Miracle tape. It needed something, so added 3 little pearl drops on 2 of the corners.
