So lets jump right in! Today’s card and project and a belated birthday gift and card for a crafty friend. I hope she loves them. Both are fun mixed media type of collage pieces. The card actually uses EVERYTHING in the tic tac toe board except sequins. Can you believe that?!?What do you think? I sponged the flowers with crumb cake to make them look a bit vintage.
Do you like the sparkly background?!? I sponged Craft White ink using the diamond happy patterns decorative mask and then sprinkled Iridescent Ice embossing powder on it and heat set it. I love the sparkle.
I used my favorite Clear Wink of Stella brush bed on the flowers and used the small antique brads for the center of the flowers. I also looped some linen thread behind the flowers to pull it all together. I hope you love it.
Since my crafty friend is also a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I printed out life-sized pictures of a classic stampin pad and bone folder and sponged the edges and mounted them with dimensionals. I also used an extra embellishment container in the lower left.
The background uses the same diamond pattern from the Happy Patterns masks, but I used some texture paste to make it dimensional, and then I sprinkled Iridescent Ice embossing powder on it and heat set it. Do you see the pretty colors? I made some alcohol colored mists using my ink refills and alcohol ink to add some Blushing Bride, Bermuda Bay, and Mint Macaron to the background.I added lots of buttons and flowers from the Botanical Builders set to add some interest and I ripped my sentiment directly out of the catalog. I figured the extra embellishments really fit with this sentiment. 🙂 I used burlap ribbon, mint macaron lace, sahara sand lace, etc. Lots and Lots to look at. I hope you enjoyed my project!
