Hi Everyone! I’m excited to share a mixed media card that I created for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Monday Challenge Blog, Love is in the Air. This card is a collection of some of my favorite items from this month’s SSS card kit with awesome Tim Holtz products thrown in for extra artsy fun.
I began by tearing a piece of the card kit paper and then distressed the edges. Next I lightly painted over the whole panel with antique linen Distress Paint. Then I used gelatos to soften the whole look.
I added the XOXOXO stickers from the kit, and stenciled using the Tim Holtz Hearts stencil with Ranger transparent gloss texture paste colored with candied apple Distress Ink. After this dried, I painted a very thick coat of Distress Crackle paint over the panel. Finally the crackle dried, and I was able to add candied apple DI around the edges with a blender.
I used the red ink and black soot around the edges of TH journaling ticket, and then added the “Love” stickers from the kit.
I tore a piece of gauze DCWV cardstock, and colored the edges with black soot DI. Next I colored four silver brads with a black Copic marker, and used these to connect the guaze and top panel together. I added a piece of black craft foam between the card base and top panels for added dimension, and finally added the kit heart stickers and the TH arrow.
So what do you think about this mixed media card? Do you love it? I think I do! Thanks again for stopping by! XOXOXO!
