Hello my dear crafty and non crafty friends! How are you guys doing? I hope you are safe and sound at your homes. #StayHomeStaySafe
Today I wanted to share a 'simple mixed media card' which I've been longing to. I don't know why my heart is drawing towards warm and pastel shades and a grungy look. I also like using bright colors on my cards but I prefer being more pastel. If you like Mixed Media and if you are a beginner, this post would be helpful for you.
MY CARD DETAILS
I started by drawing a house on the card front and cut it using Sizzix Multi Tool.
Then I adhered this pattern paper, from PaperMania, to the card front.
I flip it over and did as shown above :P
This is how the card looks from front.
Then I applied a wash of white gesso by Papericious.
I stamped the images from Mudra's Critter Party in Versafine Sepia Ink and water colored with Faber-Castell Pens.
Fussy cutting done!
Onto this panel, I applied a water wash of gold pigment paint.
I also colored the cheese cloth with the same pigment paint.
I let the panel and cheese cloth dry for sometime. Meanwhile I adhered this bright yellow card stock by Sizzix to the main card base.
I adhered the cheese cloth over it.
And placed this panel over it.
Finally I adhered the animals as shown above and also added few splatters of black paint. For the sentiment I used alpha stickers by 'Creative Retreat' phrasing 'Stay Home'.
A FEW MORE SHOTS FOR YOU
I created a scene - these animals love to stay at home during this pandemic, by adhering the animals half inside and half outside. And I wanted that bright yellow color peek through the house. I added little details to the alpha stickers to pop on the busy background.
I hope you like the card and I hope you feel inspired. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you next time :)
