On Friday I try to post a card using some of my Unity Stamps an share it on Friends with Flair. I am trying to use more of my Unity stamps but what do I do - but grab a stamp I have used before.
I decided I wanted to do a mixed media card - I love to play and get messy.
I am actually planning ahead - my youngest daughter celebrates her wedding anniversary in late September. Don't you love those falling hearts that are really leaves. It will probably gag Carrie - oh well. The focal point of the card is a book page adhered to a piece of multi media paper with gel medium. Gesso was added over the top. The blue and green were gelatos. The green did have other inks added to get a little more variation in the green grass. The tree was heat embossed and it was colored in with distress paints and a Faber Castell Big Pen. I added some embossing paste dots around the card. The edges of all the papers were distressed. I also wiped paint across some of the bottom mat which had been sanded also. The sentiment and image are pop dotted.
I am also entering this card in to the Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. The challenge is Scratched Up. Distressing, rubbing paint and ink over the paper, sanding paper - I think I nailed Scratched Up.
I also found another Mixed Media Challenge Site - Mixed Media and Watercolor - seem to be the hot picks in the world of card making right now. Their monthly challenge is to use Stencils and Pastes. I used a stencil and embossing paste for my dots on the front of my card.
After I took the picture I did add glossy accents to all the hearts.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Friday and week end.
