Rustic

Helllloo!!
I saw this gorgeous moodboard over at Artful Crafting and thought I'd play along.
The colours are SO not up my alley. I would've just used a couple of shades provided (preferably the greys and blue) and created a monochromatic card. BUT I wanted to challenge myself and stuck to the colours shown.

The big rose is handmade. The other three roses I dyed using distress inks.
The moodboard photo is so rustic and grungy, I wanted my card to have the same look
Applied tons of gesso and texture paste, also used Tim Holtz layering stencil to add design.
I also added a lot of stamping on the background but you cant really see that in photos because of the splatters.

Tons of sparkle on this card, closeup below.

Added a couple of sequins and I was done. 
I hope you like it. I was very apprehensive, I didn't want to add the rusty lattice, I was itching to add a white one instead but I stopped myself. I think it doesn't look too bad, it actually works, separates the floral arrangement from the background!
