Mixed Media Card ~ With Love Always

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… Today I have a mixed media card with digital stamp set, acrylic paints, gesso, distress oxide ink, distress ink, and watercolor crayons.

I am using the new Together digital stamp set from Graciellie Design. I started with printed out the flower and sentiment set after I resized them.

I colored the flower with Stabilo Woody Watercolor Crayons and waterbrush. I picked up the colors directly from the crayon with the waterbrush. After that I added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Brush.

I dried the image with crafter heater. And then using my Gemini Junior machine, I cut it with ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles. I also cut out the sentiment with ODBD Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

I added some gold splatter on the background by flicking the gold crayon pigment and waterbrush. I dried the panel with craft heater.

For the background panel, I started with added some acrylic paint with rubber brayer on a piece of watercolor paper. I used light blue, yellow, and orange paints from my stash. After the paints dried, I added some white gesso with finger to mute the colors. I dried it with craft heater.

Using the distress blending tool, I added some of the Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink all over the panel, then I spray with some water. I let it sit for several second, and I dabbed it off with paper towel for extra texture. I cut out the panel to fit as the mat on a 5×7 card base. And after trimming it, I added some Distress Vintage Photo ink with blending tool around the edges of the panel for extra shadow.

I added the background panel and the flower panel on the card with Scrapbook Adhesive E-Z Runner Grand. And then I added the sentiment pennant flag on the card with 3D fun foam and dries-clear adhesive glue for extra dimension.

To embellished the card, I added some white pearl gems and some natural burlap twine.

I hope you all enjoy this post today. Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!
