Mixed Media: Potted Succulent Thank You Card

Happy New Year to you and your family! Let’s kicking off the 2017 with some creative challenges! I created a mixed media card with some embossing paste, embossing powder, watercoloring and die-cutting.

Hero Arts products I used on my card today are:

  • Potted Succulent stamp & frame cut
  • Thanks Stamp & Cut
  • Petal Stencil Pair

To create the background, I added the Ranger Texture paste on the canson watercolor paper using the one of the Petal Stencil Pair set, then I added the Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder while the paste still wet and set aside to dry while I was working on the potted succulent and die cut.

I stamped and die cut the Potted Succullent. Then I watercolor it with Spectrum Aqua markers. Then I added some glitter using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle clear glitter brush.

Next, I die cut the word thanks out of Black cards stock and black fun foam for extra dimension.

Before I added the watercolored Potted Succulent and sentiment die cut on the card, I heat set the embossing powder using craft heater. I pre-heated the heater for 15 seconds then run it over the card. It was fun to watch the embossing powder melt on top of the embossing paste 🙂 Once it is done, I added  the embellishments with liquid glass glue.

I also stamped the inside card with the sentiment from the Thanks Stamp & Cut set. That finished my card for today. Don’t forget to check out a2z Scrapbooking Store for your crafting supplies and deals, also take extra 15% OFF your order of $25 or more by using this code: Helen15 when you check out!
