Orange and Black

Hello all, this is gonna be my third post today....I made this card this morning. It is a mixed media card, I am not very good at mixed media, but I do give it a go from time to time. I used a shaded orange base, and a black textured card stock as frame, a water color front panel - I started painting some Tim Holtz crackle paint on the water color paper, and I sponge some distressed inks - spiced marmalade, and carved pumpkin on the card, I wiped the painted surface off the ink, then used Heidi Swapp's mixed media stamp to stamp the script look. Late I stamped some flowers from Hero Arts - things to treasure around the painted spot, and used one more flower from the same set as my focal point, I fuzzy cut this and added with a foam adhesive, the sentiment is also from the same set. I decided to tilt the front panel a bit, I don't know why ;)
