Blast Birthday Mixed Media Card

Hello hello hello… Thank Goodness It Is Friday! I hope you all are doing well… Today, I would love to share this blast birthday mixed media card.

I am playing with color blending, embossing and paint splatters.

I had fun creating the background usingVersaFine Clair Ink Pads: Blue Belle, Purple Delight, Tulip Red, Summertime, Green Oasis, and Nocturne. I picked the ink up with make up sponge, and started sponging it on a Neenah solar white cardstock. I blended the colors as I go.

I dried the galaxy background with craft heater when I was done adding those inks. Since these are super juicy pigment inks, I dried it longer to make sure no more wet ink for the next step.

I treated the background panel with anti-static powder tool for heat embossing. I stamped the stars and dots images randomly on the galaxy background panel from Out Of This World stamp set (Joy Clair) with VersaMagic Cloud White using MISTI. I stamped them couple times to get bolder look. And while the ink still wet, I sprinkled them with Mboss Embossing Powder Sparkle, and then heat it up with craft heater.

After that, I added more whita splatters on the galaxy background panel using white acrylic paint, little bit of water and fan brush. I set the background panel aside to dry.

Next step, I stamp the rocket ship, astronout, and sentiment using MISTI with VersaFine Clair Nocturne on a piece of Neenah solar white cardstock. I dried them with craft heater.

On the craft mat, I dabbed some of the the Memento DewDrop Cantaloup, Bahama Blue, Lady Bug and London Fog. Using wet small round brush, I colored the images. YUP! I did watercoloring with Memento DewDrop. It was fun!!!

After watercoloring, I dried them all and then I fussy cut the rocketship and astronout with scissors.

I trimmed the finished galaxy background panel into 4″ x 5.25″ and I added it on an 4.25″ x 5.5″ white card using TapeRunner adhesive. Next, I trimmed the sentiment into a rectangle and added it on the card with 3D foam. Then, I added the rest images with 3D foam, too.

I did have much fun creating this blast birthday mixed media card. I hope this bring a smile on your face, too.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all stay safe and healthy!
