Mixed Media Birthday Cards

Image
I wanted to share how I created a mixed media card using  Rebecca Baer and DecoArt Stencils, Stamping and embellishments.
Using Gelli Plate is one of my favorite ways to make my own deisgns. I laid the part of the stencil over the plate that I wanted to use. Rebecca Baer Dragonfly Fantasy stencil.
I applied two shades of Americana acrylic paint with my brayer. Pulled print number one. Allow the design on the plate to dry.


Brayer white on top of dried design and pull print number two.  On the first card I used watercolor pencils to add some dimension to the dragonfly. I stamped the Prima girl and fussy cut her out. Added her with dimensions. Coloring was done with watercolor pencils.

Cowboy Girl Birthday!

Happy Saturday! I've designed a custom birthday card. The request was for a 17 year old girl using cowboy boots.



I hand drew the boot on tan SU cardstock. Ran it thru Big Shot using Sizzix Flourish embossing folder. I inked up one side with SU Bravo Burgundy which created this cool two toned look.
 I used Zig Artist Sketching Pen to outline the boot and draw the heel.  Next, I applied Metallic Lustre -Fab Fushia with my finger. Shiny highlights!
                     I knew I wanted to show both boots standing up. I designed a Z-Fold.                    Started with 10x7 white cardstock. Scored at 2 3/4 and 5 inches.              Covered with designer paper.              folded and attached the boots with SU dimensionals.
This is did dots using Liquid Pearl White Opal
Then I decorated with Flourish with a Bling pearls and  Wild Orchid flowers.  The sentiments were stamped on tan cardstock and punched the edges with scallop punch.
Viola! LOVE how it turned out!!
Thanks for stop…
