Good morning everyone!
Today I have a couple of mixed media cards to share with you... they feature a beautiful butterfly from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. They were stamped in black ink, heat embossed with clear power and watercolored with Distress inks. For the backgrounds I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Melange Tissue Wrap and then I got a little crazy with all of my mixed media goodies! Between the two cards I had used gesso, acrylic paint, crackle paste, Nuvo Glimmer paste, Distress inks & Distress crayons, a couple of stencils and several stamps :)
They were really fun to make and I love how this card turned out...
and I'm pretty happy with the one below but I applied too much glimmer paste through my stencil and you can't really see the shape of the yellow circles but IRL this card is super sparkly! I used a Pink & Main die for the 'celebrate' sentiment and a Avery Elle die for the stitched rectangles. The label sentiments are from Altenew & Studio Katia and the stamped circles are from Simon Says Stamp and Carabelle Studio.
Well, that's all for now... thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog today!
