Blossom Index Card

Hi there,

Our Mixed Media Moods is celebrating its one year Moodaversary and I created this Index Card inspired bei Jenn's and Dee Dee's Mood Board:

  • glue together two 3'' x 5'' index cards for an extra sturdy base
  • cover the whole card with white gesso
  • add an extra layer with heavy gesso and carve some leaf shapes into it with the back of your paintbrush
  • add some color with watered-down Dylusions Paint (Funky Fuchsia, Calypso Teal)
  • use a black Dina Wakley Scribble Stick to add some shadows around the leaves
  • add some texture to the background by stamping the Rubber Dance Vintage Hotel Receipt with Archival Ink (Watering Can)
  • add faux stitching all around the card with the help of one of the stamps from the Darkroom Door Stitched Borders set and Archival Ink (Black Soot)
  • add a sentiment sticker on top of a piece of matching used underpaper and corrugated cardboard

Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl

Hi there,

today, I would like to show you this sweet birthday card that I created for the new Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge:

  • create that striped background on a stitched panel of watercolor paper using watercolors (Prima Marketing, Winsor & Newton), a flat brush and your MISTI Creative Corners
  • stamp the adorable little girl from the Neat & Tangled Better together set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and color the image with Copic, Touch Twin Brush and Delta Markers
  • wrap a strip of torn vellum around the panel before adhering the girl on top
  • cut the sentiment with the help of the Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Border and kraft cardstock
  • for the cardbase I used kraft cardstock as well

Thanks for stopping by.
