Sending Thanks

Hi friends, happy Monday. Today I am sharing a fun mixed media card I had made a while back. I recreated the card putting together an easy step by step. I have added a product list below with quick links to Simon Says Stamp my favorite one stop shop.

Using a layering technique I created a fun background with a mix of both oxide and distress inks. The colors I used were salvaged patina, crackling campfire and the gorgeous new prize ribbon. I usually end up doing quite a few layers, drying each one in between. After the last layer I splattered the cardstock with water and let it sit for a few seconds and dried off the panel using flour sack cloth. Love the texture the water spots create.

Using distress black archival ink I stamped on a few images from Inquisitive and Bitty Grunge. I didn’t add too many only because the Roseville Bouquet was going to take up quite a bit of space on the panel.

I stenciled on the Tim Holtz mosaic pattern on the panel trying to keep the centre clear for the Roseville Bouquet embossing folder.

I had taped down the panel onto the 3D folder. I found the best ink to use was Altenew Obsidian pigment ink. I carefully inked up the raised portion of the folder and put it through my Sizzix Big Shot. I inked it up 1 more time to get a nice deep rich impression.

Love how the image from the embossing folder stands out on the mixed media background. I finished off card by adding white ink splatters and cutting the panel down to fit on an A2 size cardbase. After adding a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp sentiment strips and I was done. Hope you give this technique a try 🙂
