Hello lovelies! Time to share the December Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s challenge with you today! This time you are asked to use GOLD and as an optional element, add STARS to your CARD!
This is my take for the reveal:
I first took a piece of white cardstock, die cut that in 1/3 and 2/3 sized pieces using the Holiday Garlands 2 die cut set. That way I had an upper piece, a middle garland part and a lower piece. Next I misted the upper part with purple, dark red, aubergine and black spray ink colors (all by Tattered Angels). After that I added white acrylic paint splatters onto that background. It now looks like the universe/space. I really like this look!!!
I then took the lower piece and attached Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto it and poured golden Silk Microfine Glitter onto that piece and polished that with my finger to make it all shiny and stick to the adhesive (here is a video how to do that). When the glitter piece was finished, all I had to do was to adhere all pieces onto their places with paper glue. Next I stamped a sentiment with black ink and inked the background with pink Distress Ink. I then fussy cut the stamped image along the edges. Finally I added some half pearls onto the garland for decoration.
This card I pretty clean and simple looking even though it takes quite a lot of media to make it :). I hope you will find this months challenge interesting and join in with us! Who does not love gold???!!! Hope to see you at MMCC this month, lovelies!!!
