Dream Come True @ Digistamps4Joy

{My DT work for DS4J}

Hi everyone! Wish you all well, happy and healthy. So am I as I was able to weeding underneath my lovely yuca tree yesterday and continued a little bit more later before the sun started heating up. I am very much into gardening mood since last week now that the rain has stop falling allowing us sun ray and not to mention windy and dry season!

Enough chit-a chat. So it's that time again for a mid-challenge reminder at Digistamps4Joy February ChallengeThe theme as always is Anything Goes with optional Red for Valentine's Day. However I don't celebrate this day. Nevertheless I added red to blend with black and white on my mixed media card. Red is my favorite color I can't resist for this challenge but if you notice in many projects I did in the past, I hardly use red.
I  have no idea why {smile}.  
For this project, I have used Fuschia digital image. Click here for this beauty.
I stamped leaves above the fuschia to make it more interesting and lively. I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils to color the fuschia.
 I added some punch leaves tucked underneath each other so the punched flowers can smile to accompany the beautiful fuschia. Besides hydrangeas, roses and orchids, I also love fuschias but unfortunately my climate is not suitable to grow them in my garden.
 The background was the first process to do whereby I cut strips of papers and adhere them randomly to create texture. I laid down pieces of drywall tape randomly as well. Then the piece was gesso-ed and blow dry with heat gun. Next process was applying texture paste through a stencil.
 I can't recall where the sentiment is from because I printed it long ago and never use until now so it does come handy and ready to use. I like! 
 I used watercolors to paint the background by spritzing water to let it run all over the place but with control for sure {chuckle}.
 So there you have it. I hope I am able to inspire you today. The monthly challenge ends this 28th day so get your creation/s into the challenge link sooner.
