More mixed media March challenge

This is my design project for More mixed media March challenge where the option this month is to use green, so I used plenty of it (and not much else!).

I covered the front of a plain beige coloured scrapbook (the finish was a bit like canvas so I took a chance to see if gesso/paint would 'take'). I added white gesso, slightly watered down and then brushed with a mix of three different acrylic paints, using a fourth one to stencil through the woodland flower stencil, adding white opal liquid pearls and dabbing around the bottom with the stencil brush. The 'remember' and the corner stamps are from a Teresa Collins set inked with memento cottage ivy (more prominent irl than in the photo).

Update: I notice that, in the comments, quite a few people have referred to this as a card - it isn't a card, it's the front of an 8 x 8 scrapbook which was originally plain beige.

Colour for Curtain call: green:

And for Allsorts 405: spring inspiration:
