Hard to believe it is August already and time for a new Mixed Media Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. The challenge this month is tissue paper.
I had ordered online and my items came wrapped in this beautiful tissue paper and I knew I wanted to use it on a card.
I adhered the tissue paper to watercolor paper with gel medium. I wanted to use a paper that had some body to it to support what I was going to add to the front of the card. I added a layer of snowflake texture paste to add some glisten and texture to the card front.
I colored a circle with Dina Wakely paint to make a matching background for the flower I fussy cut from the tissue. The background matches beautifully. The flower is pop dotted on the matted circle. The circles are also pop dotted for more dimension.
I white embossed a birthday sentiment on a black circle and then cut the top off and pop dotted it to the top of the card. I tied a beautiful bow to bring some more black on the card front.
I had fussy cut another large flower and I put that on the back of the envelope so it will be pleasing to the eye also.
Please join us at Happy Little Stampers for our August Mixed Media Challenge.
