Hello everyone… I hope your Holiday’s preparation is going well so far 🙂 This week I am finishing all my Christmas card project and get them ready to send out.
Today, I am sharing a mixed medai card that is inspired by some Christmas tree mixed media canvases that I saw at Pinterest 🙂
My card sizes is 6″ x 4.5″ and I used Canson Watercolor paper for card base. First, I created the background with Spectrum Aqua Markers and water using smooshing technique and drying in between smooshing to created the extra texture on it.
Then I stamped the splatters, bubbles and border from HLS – Fun Mixed Media stamp set with Memeto Luxe Tuxedo Black ink pad. I added some white gesso with flat medium brush on the background and dried it with craft heater.
I cut out paper strips out of the Christmas theme scrap papers I had to form the tree. I added them on the card with gel medium and when it dried, I added some shadow with Faber Castell Big Brush Pen and smoosh it with my finger.
Next is I stamped and cut out the words from STAMPlorations – Peace Love Joy stamp set and then I added them on the card with gel medium. Then I double-heat embossing the snowflake, cut it out, and added on top of the tree with 3d foam tape.
I finished this card with some gold glitter glue and white pearl gems. It is finished and I am so tempted just out it on a frame 😀 I hope you are inspired today with this project.
