Michael Strong Card of the Day - Wednesday

Here is my card of the day for Wednesday.  To create the background I first smeared some Tim Holtz Picket Fence (the white suff) all over my craft sheet in a rectangle about the size of a card.  It then pools together.  Then I dropped some Tim Holtz re-inkers (bundled sage, wild honey and crushed olive) into the mess. I plopped my Stampin Up! naturals white cardstock into the mess and pushed down on it.  I picked it up and found that the paper wasn't quite covered but I LOVED the look of the rest so I just left it rather than ruin it.  Then I stamped the small gecko with some Tim Holtz gathered twig.  I wasn't very careful with that and sometimes got a mark from the edge of the stamp.  So to cover that up I sprayed with some of the Stampin Up! log cabin spritz.  Then I distressed the edges and sponged on some gathered twig there also.  The cardstock is Stampin Up! chocolate chip and more mustard.  I embossed the mustard with the Victorian embossing folder and sponged it with some Tim Holtz wild honey.
