Another Guy Card

Hello Again!

Gosh, we are seeing the sunshine 3 days in a row here in St Louis, and it is making me wishing for spring.  I am ready!
Today's card is CAS but also mixed media.

Isn't it nice when the idea in your head actually comes out on the paper?  This actually turned out better than I imagined it.  I started with a monoprint that I had made months ago, but was hoarding.
I used my gel plate, brayer, acrylic paints, and a Tim Holtz stencil to make the panel.
I cut a piece from it, divided it in two and used these as my background panel.  They have been outlined with a Sakura Pigma Micron Pen to match the doodled frame of my image.
The main image is actually from two stamp sets- Autumn Splendor (leaf) and Just Be ( doodled frame) Stamp Sets. The leaf was stamped, masked, and then the frame was stamped.  The images were stamped in Versafine Black Onyx Ink and water colored with Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders.   To compliment the areas of white on my monoprint background, I spattered some white acrylic paint onto the framed leaf.  The image was fussy cut out and popped up on dimensional adhesive.
The sentiment, from the Lots-a-Spots Stamp Set was stamped in the Verafine Black as well.
Inspiration for this card came from a few challenges~
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, Frame It.
