Hello there, lovelies! A new month means a new challenge over at the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog. February´s challenge is all about the color RED and as an optional element you are asked to use HEARTS. Perfect for Valentine´s, right?
First I sprayed a piece of white paper with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Cross My Heart) and let that layer dry.
Next I grabbed a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil (love this heart stencil!!) and applied some Imagine Crafts silver metallic creative medium thru the stencil onto the misted paper. I let it air dry before moving over to the next step.
Next I took a hand carved heart stamp and Archival Ink (jet black) and stamped some hearts here and there (very randomly) onto the background. Next I took various stickers from my stash (they are very old and adhered them onto the card. There are both Basic Grey and Creative Memories stickers in there.
Next I had created a rosette flower with a Tim Holtz die cut die and misted it with dark blue, pink and light blue Glimmer Mist. There is also a litte Basic Grey heart sticker in the middle of it, outlined with a black pen and then covered with Glossy Accents for additional dimension. After that I went along and added some red sewing garn around the piece for additional interest.
Finally, as I still cannot live without black and white splatters, there had to be some white Texture Spray (by Imagine Crafts) and for black splatters my all time fave Glimmer Glaze by Tattered Angels.
Before adhering the misted and decorated piece onto a card base I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white paper with black Archival Ink, cut the sentiment in 3 pieces and wiped some pink ink onto the pieces. Then I adhered them and some sequins, wood veneer and cork hearts here and there and the card was finished.
There is quite a lot of “stuff” on this card, not typical for me, I guess, but I very, very much enjoyed creating these layers. So now it is your turn, hop over to the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog to see more inspiration created by my design team colleagues!!! Just remember to create a CARD for the challenge and follow the rules! Hope to see you at MMCC,
