Paper craft project no. 293: So thankful mixed media card

2014-11-1 So thankful MMM

We’ve got a new challenge at Mixed Media Mojo. This month, our theme is “Thanks/Thankful”. Stop by the blog to see the beautiful projects my team mates created!

To create my mixed media card, I watercolored yellow and orange Inktense blocks on my card base (140-lb cold-press watercolor paper) and then stamped the trendy leaves in Memento ink (morocco). On a watercolor panel (3″ by 4.5″), I stamped my daisies and watercolored various Distress inks on the panel and daisies (barn door, fired brick, spiced marmalade, wild honey, crushed olive, vintage photo). I also painted the daisies with a thin coat of pearl red Twinkling H2Os to give them a little shimmer. I also applied and blended water soluble oil pastels along the edges of the daisies to give them some depth/dimension. I applied whipped spackle over a honeycomb stencil and then rubbed gold champagne and mango Gelatos. I rubbed licorice Gelatos on the edges of the panel and then stamped the sentiment before adhering the panel to my card base.

[I’ve got another mixed media card posting in about 6 hours. It’s a Christmas card but I used similar techniques on the panel. I’ve got a video of how I put that card together so check back again in a few hours. Here’s that post with the video tutorial.]

I’m linking up this card to these fun challenges: Brown Sugar #118 – Anything Goes; Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes; and Fussy and Fancy Challenge #126 – Thankful.

Thanks for stopping by!
