Abstract Stencilled Nuvo Card

I didn't even realise it was Friday today until about an hour ago and it kicked me into gear to publish another blog post. I'm sharing boxes, canvases, cards and projects over the next week or so but I think one a day is about my limit. As it's Friday I'm sharing a fun project I made using some of the new Nuvo Hybrid Inks. They are totally fabulous!
Products Used: 
Canson Mixed Media Card
Palette knife
Art Extravagance TExture Paste - White Crackle

I've mixed the inks with a variety of other products but isn't that what crafting is about? 
I started out with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. Now you just have to slap it on. Don't be afraid to use it, that's why we bought it, right? I've used Aquamarine and Citrus Green straight onto mixed media card with a palette knife. 
I then used the largest square die from the Tonic Sweet Nothings surprise bouquet without the outside edge die as I wanted it to stay in the card as a stencil. 
Add texture paste to the stencil to the smaller (5 inch) of the two panels and allow to dry. I used art Extravagance white crackle texture paste but any will do. 
I think it's beautiful on it's own in 3 simple steps. 
Here are a few other backgrounds using the same technique and all looking completely different. This first photo shows you the die and some Nuvo Hybrid Royal Plum ink over the texture paste. 
 And a few more backgrounds I can use at a later date.
Now that the panels are complete, I need a sentiment....and Craftwork Cards do awesome ones. Here, I've used their fantastic stamp from their Work of Art set as it was perfect for the project. 
Now add Nuvo Hybrid Ink - Spanish Sangria over the stencilled image and even over some of the mousse as I thought it looked more interesting. I then layered the panels up and popped them all on a 15cm cardbase. 
Sequins....well, I was thinking of using some and I dropped the bottle on my desk and all over the card. I thought....oooh, I like that. So, I went about adding glue in various places all over my card and then tipped the sequins over the card like you would embossing powder. They stuck and lots of them! I added the sentiment in a place that was void of the lovely sequins and that's it! 

Yea, I know it's kind of funky and thinking about it I should have added a Spanish Sangria border around the larger panel, but it'll do for an abstract piece. 
I like the abstract feel to this card and wish I could have kept it - maybe I'll make another one ;)
I'd love to know what you think - and don't forget to leave me your blog address so I can come visit you!
Lots of love and hugs
