Hello Everyone… I hope you all have a great week so far… From snowy and cold days, this week we have rainy, windy and warmer days. The girls would want to have more extra snow days, but this Mama loves Spring to get here soon… LOL!
It is time for an inspirations… I created a mixed media card and on this card today has that splash of Spring on it… the colors and the flowers, too 🙂
I added the one of the new ODBD – Plum Pizzaz Paper Pad, on the base card with permanent adhesive runner. Then using the Shutter stencil and metal spatula, I added the Ranger Texture Paste on the background. And I set aside to dry.
Then using MISTI, I stamped the flower from A Happy Hello Stamp Set from Our Daily Bread Designs with Moss Green, Yellow, and Purple Spectrum Aqua Markers on Canson Watercolor Paper. Then using the small watercolor brush, I traced the flower to give some watercolor look. Then I stamped it again with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and added some clear embossing powder, then heat-set it with my craft heater. Then I added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush. I fussy-cut it with my non-stick micro-tip scissors.
I die cut the ODBD – Stitched Ovals Dies to create the frame. I die-cut the banner from ODBD – Pennant Flags Dies and the matching stitched banner from ODBD – Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies, too. After I die cut them, I run it through the machine again to embossed them with the same dies to give them extra texture on it. Then I stamped the sentiment on the banner die cut with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. Papers I used for these die cuts are from ODBD – Plum Pizzaz Paper Pad.
I put all the pieces together using Glue Dots small, medium and thick. I used glue dots becuase I want to have some dimensions to the layers and they will be added right on top of the texture paste. And glue dots will hold them strongly on the texture paste 🙂
And I finished my CAS – Mixed Media Card with some purple sparkly dots using the Ranger Purple Stickles.
