Mixed Media Birthday Cards


 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.

 Heres a close up showing the glitter glue I added to the dragonfly.
 For the 2nd card I started with Heartfelt Creations designer paper. Heat embossed the doily using white embossing powder.

I wanted spring colors. The Close to the Heart Country Life stamp set from  was perfect! 
I stamped the cute lamp with the sentiment. The back circle was cut from the first gelli print.
Love the orange and purple colors!


 I'm entering Craft Stamper Magazine challenge
and Word Art Wednesday.
