Hello everyone… On this first Sunday of the month, I have a Spring mixed media card to share with you all today.
On my mixed media card today, I use the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations Stencil, Trendy Spring Blooms Stamp Set, Trendy Spring Blooms Dies, and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Die.
I had been having so much fun creating monoprinting with my new ARTplorations stencils! So… Here’s how I did the background.
I printed the background using the gelli printing technique with the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations, Gelli Art Printing Plate, and Heavybody Acrylic Paints. I used brayer to apply the paint in the plate and pulled the positive and negative prints on mixed media papers.
When the print dried, I cut it with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies using my Gemini Junior machine. I added the background panel on a white card base with permanent adhesive.
I cut the burlap circle ring using burlap cardstock and 2 sizes of circle dies. I added on the card with permanent adhesive glue. I pressed it down in place with couple acrylic stamping blocks until the glue dried.
I cut out some leaves using green cardstocks and the leaf die from Trendy Spring Blooms Dies.
For the flowers, I stamped some of the printed flowers stamps from the Trendy Spring Blooms stamp set with VersaFine Clair inks on regular white copy paper, and fussy cut them with scissors.
I added some alcohol inks on a piece of glossy photo paper, blended them with blending solution, and before it completely dry, I added some of gold fool transfer sheet on it. After that I cut it with some of the flower dies from the Trendy Spring Bloom Dies. I added the printed flowers behind the die cut flowers with adhesive glue.
I arranged all the flowers and leaves on the burlap wreath circle with adhesive glue and some with 3D foam tape.
The sentiment is from the Trendy Sprung Bloom stamp set that I stamped with VersaFine Clair ink on white cardstock. I trimmed it into sentiment banner and added it on the card with 3D foam tape in the middle, and secure both ends with adhesive.
