Hello lovelies, it is again time for another Mixed Media challenge!!! New month always means new challenge, so here goes:
My take for this months reveal is a set of Artist Trading Cards. The theme I went with is April showers :)… very suitable, eh?
Here is what I did:
First take a piece of dark blue cardstock and but into the right (ATC) size. The take a piece of leftover, misted, stenciled paper (my piece is from this project) and some wood veneer clouds.
Punch flowers from the leftover music note paper with a flower punch (or use a die cut die).
Take a raindrop stencil and draw along the raindrops with a white gel pen onto the background.
Remove stencil and add some additional effects with the pen for a more interesting look.
Embellish! Use pieces of ribbon/burlap, the wood veneer pieces and the punched flowers to decorate the ATCs. Add red liquid pearl dots into the middle of the flowers for dimension.
Take a piece of old paper and add handwritten sentiments to the ATCs. Outline along the edges and glue on place. That´s it. Very easy to do. Here is the finished set:
Now is again your turn to get started! Hope you will find the time to play along and join in on the April challenge with us! Remember, anything mixed media, but cards, is allowed. Use at least one stencil (any brand) and follow the linky rules. That´s it! And you can again win some STAMPloration product goodness!!!
