Lifting up a song- mix-Ability card

My card that I'm sharing today is for several challenges.
First for:
Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge PPA303, I love the colors in this challenge.

Second challenge:
Try it on Tuesday: I can Hear Music I used music notes for my little birds to sing.

The third challenge is :
Word art Wednesday 232-233

The fourth challenge is the MIX-ABILITY challenge on Splitcoast stampers. I am the hostess this week. My friend Maxine shared a card using this technique last month and you can see it HERE.

When I saw it I knew I was going to use Jennifer Mcguire's Watercoloring Lifting Heat Embossing

Here is what my watercolor wash looked like when it dried. 

I stamped the music notes with versamark and clear embossing powder. Then I lifted the color up. I then stamped the birds and grass, with  black stazon. The black didn't completely fill in because the paper was a little warped. I thought about filling it in with a sharpie marker, but then I decided to color it in with blue and green. I added green to the grass as well.

I added white acrylic paint drops and lines to the grass.
 I sprayed gold shimmer paint on panel. I splattered white acrylic paint with a toothbrush. I also added glamour dust to the flowers.

I added cheesecloth and brads to finish off my card.
