Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a birthday card I completed for the StampTV challenge “Mix It Up Monday,” (MIUM). This is a big test for me because my “goal” for 2017 was to create at least 3-4 projects (cards, mixed-media, journal pages, etc.) a week and blog about them all.
My first step was trimming Bristol Smooth cardstock down to 4¼” square. Next was embossing the flowers with white embossing powder and start the water coloring. The Zig Brush Markers colors I used for the background olive green and blue gray. The flowers were light violet and deep violet. I added some gold gel pen to the centers. I fussy cut the flowers and added them to the square panel. Sponging some of GKD’s Moonlit Flog to the edges and some of the background was done with a sponge dauber. The sentiment was stamped with GKD’s Onyx Black. For the finale touches I splattered some yellow gold watercolor and some various sizes of gold sequins.
Until next time...wishing you happiness and artiness!
