Hi friends! I am back with two more cards :) Usually can't help it... always end up in making a card when an idea hits me. Hope you will enjoy.
With me being on the Mixed Media Card challenge team, I tend to be inclined towards mixed media now. If you read the definition, you will know that we have been making a lot of mixed media cards even without realizing :) Here's a new card with the same theme Touch of Nature. Don't forget to play along with us at MMCC #1 In this one I used stamps, inks, embossing powder and water color technique :) So here's my card...
To make this card, I masked off the lower edge of the card and heat embossed the trees in black. Then I took the Distress ink pads and brushed them directly on my water color card stock. this followed some water spray and wash to create a sunrise :) the embossing resisted the water colors and resulted in a subtle BG.
I am entering this at the following challenges -
And now another one, this is inspired by the Retrosketches #122, Color Q #248, Cure for Monday Blues #23 and House of Cards July challenge - Bow. To make this, I did some stamping of sentiment hexagons on card base. Added the die cut sentiment, heart and butterflies to finish the card. Finally, tied a bow with a twine :)
Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
