Just a quick reminder for the Mixed Media Card Challenge for July!
After covering my card base with clear gesso I did lots of background stamping with several STAMPlorations stamps. I've used three different colors of archival inks. Next came some heavy gesso through the ARTplorations X Marks the Spot stencil. For more texture, I randomly added more of the heavy gesso with a spatula.
I used some Primary Elements Artist Pigment with water and a brush to add some color to the background. The I added some microbeads with some gel medium for a bit of sparkle (you'll have to pretend you see this ok?). I stamped the flowers and then did some messy watercoloring on them. The vase is a simple die cut that's been popped up on some foam adhesive.
Here's what I used:
Paper: Strathmore 140# watercolor, misc. black and Neenah Solar White
Ink: Archival in Watering Can, Jet Black and Forget Me Not
Stamps: STAMPlorations Rosebuds from The Bee's Knees, Trendy Butterflies and Noteworthy
All the other stuff: ARTplorations X Marks the Spot stencil, clear gesso, heavy gesso, gel medium, Primary Elements Artist Pigment, distress markers, Finnabair microbeads, spatula, vase die, foam adhesive
Back soon with more my sweet friends...
