Hints of Spring Vol 2. – Mixed Media Card Challenge

Hello there, time to bring you some additional inspiration to the March Mixed Media Card Challenge :)! This months theme is Spring and the optional element this time is a bird.

And here are some additional cards I created based on this months theme:

On the above card I´ve used some paper leftovers from the Teresa Collins „Save the Date“ collection kit. In addition I´ve punched out some butterflies, again using a purple sprayed leftover paper piece. I then added some yarn in matching colours and outlined the butterflies with a white pen. A pearl in the middle is for additional interest and the little puffy sticker (by Evalicious) is my sentiment.

This is a very clean&simple card, but I like how it turned out and I again got some stash busted too :).

My next card is very different to what I usually make, but I took out some older (as in: I´ve had them for a looong time :)!!) Hero Arts stamps and stamped the brach, fussy cut it (yes I did – and it´s very thin!!), coloured the leaves with a green marker and glued it down on the dry embossed piece. The clouds pattern comes from a Stampin´ Up! dry embossing folder – I just love it! I´ve also inked the clouds with a blue Distress Ink afterwards to give the sky more interest. Next I took a leftover piece (when I make mixed media stuff, I always save the colorful, random leftover pieces for such purposes as these!) of watercolor paper, stamped the birdies on it various times to get different coloured wings and bodies and then did some paper piecing and glued everything on their places. The wood veneer heart is covered with glitter glue and inside I´ve applied some Glossy Accents and poured some micro beads into the empty space.

Quite a lot of work for such a simple looking card, come to think of it ;-). By the way, the sentiment says: You are staggering!

So this was my take – now it´s your turn! Excited to see what you will make out of this challenge! See you at MMCC,
