Mixed Media Card with Background stamp and Mists

Hello everyone!
This is Jaya here.
Hope you all are enjoying the fun challenge -Background Stamps+Mists hosted by our very talented DT Kripa this fortnight.
 Here is my mixed media card for you as inspiration.

I used my background stamp to create the illusion of a garden with butterflies and vines and used my mists to colour the entire scene.
For this card, I first chose the base on which I had to start building up my design.
I decided  to go with a semi gloss chipboard. This was none other than the packaging I had saved from my Martha Stewart scoreboard.
Next I randomly sprayed my Lindys Starburst sprays on this in Bachelor button blue, 
Sea Grass green, Sea mint green and Tweedle Dee Denim Flat Fabio. 
 I then stamped my Justrite Background Stamp- Butterfly and Vines in Black Archival Ink. 
I lifted off some ink from the image from the top portion before it could dry.
Again a coat of Lindy's sprays lighten the stamping further.Then heat dried all of this.
 Now I started with my stencils from Magenta and used some texture paste mixed with Lindy's  Stamp gang spray-  Cape Cod Coral and made the flowers.
The butterflies are also from the same stencil with I made using some texture paste in black and later coated them with glossy accents and some glitter.
 I also used the Prima- Bubbles stencil to make the bubbles. Outlined them with charcoal pencil and filled in with some white and light blue Oil pastels.
Made the centre of the flowers with LSG Sprays- Rambling Rose Pink
 Gave a few splatters with LSG sprays- Rambling Rose Pink , Bachelor Button blue and 
Shimmerz Spray- white
 I applied some glossy accents to the top portion of the card and coated it with diamond dust. When dry I lightly added some Tweedle Dee Denim Flat Fabio on this and allowed it to seep through the crevices. Also used my latest buy Prima chalk edger fluid set #2. -Green for highlighting the grasses and stems
  I also distressed the edges of the card with Prima comfort craft tool.
Lastly made a Hashtag sentiment- Happy days with Studio Calico wood veneer-Alphabets and coated it with black paint and glossy accents.

Hope you liked the card and were inspired enough to participate. Only a couple of days left to get in your entry into this challenge.
