Love Mixed Media


The making of this card was inspired when I saw this months topic on The Mixed Media Card Challenge.  


Onto white cardstock I stenciled the large heart (The Crafter's Workshop) using Wendy Vecchi's Gold Embossing Paste.  While the paste was still wet I sprayed on Distress Spray Stain Spun Sugar and Candied Apple along with just a little water.  Using a damp cloth I blotted over the paste creating texture in it and then left the piece to dry.  Once dry, I doodled around the heart with a white pen.  Onto this piece I've added die cuts, silk flowers, washi tape, and glitter paste around the edges.  Love is an A Way With Words, Elizabeth Craft Designs die and I've cut it from White Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Red Cardstock also backed with adhesive.  These are layered together and stuck onto the card.  The Calligraphic Heart is also an A Way With Words die (Calligraphic Elements 1).  I put two pieces of Red Cardstock together with glue stick, cut out the heart and I'm using an Idea-ology pin to hold it.  The Leaves are an Elizabeth Craft Designs die (Leafy Branch).  I cut one branch from White Soft Finish Cardstock and then cut it apart to get all the pieces you see.  The flowers are old from my stash and I've added Gold Stickles to the centers of the two smaller ones.  A couple pieces of Washi Tape are in the bottom right corner.  Around the edges I've added Bo-Bunny Glitter Paste.  This panel is attached to a white panel and then the red card.  Finish size is 4 3/4" x 6".   


Love the shine of that Gold Embossing Paste!!!!

This is sooooooo pretty! I just love the shimmeriness of that heart and it's so great to see the little spots of white act as a relief against the vibrant color. Great design work! Thanks for playing along at Mixed Media Card Challenge!
