Spread your wings MMC


Today I'll be sharing a mixed media card.


I started off with my favy watercolor paper (4"×4") & flutterby stencil. I applied
DI peacock feathers, salty ocean, worn lipstick & squeezed lemonade.

I put some clear glitter embossing powder when it is still wet & heat set it.


Embellishments are handmade.
Also added some color splashes.
Sentiment is handwritten on ledger PP from prima & fussy cut into tiles.
I inked a green satin ribbon with some mowed lawn DI & made the bow..


For the frames i've used paper & DI.. I absolutely love the green frame.. I've used Brustro's iridescent paper & inked with mowed lawn & squuezed lemonade mixture.. That sparkle is so cool isn't it?! :)

i've stuck everything on to a 5"×5" cardstock panel.. Finally Added some pearls.

Hope you liked it :)
Do lemme kno your comments. They mean a lot to me. Thanks for your time.
Create. Have fun.

Hi :)

Here's another mixed media upcycled project. I made this to gift my mom on mother's day.

If u r interested in the steps kindly read on.
The process is sooo long. I've kept it as short as possible :)
•I started with a cardboard packaging box of a clock. 

•Covered it with papericious wood texture pattern paper. (Steps done on all 5 sides. Back left undone.)
•Applied texture paste (sakura+camlin mixture) through stencils. ( TCW: Art is, blazonry, chevron. Bricks stencil is home made by drawing on OHP sheet & fussy cutting with craft knife)
•colored the BG with distress inks (peacock feathers, salty ocean, broken China & squeezed lemonade). Made blotches with water to add more texture.
•went on to add colors over the textured area with Pearl & metallic acrylic paints.
•Added gesso splashes all over.
•some BG script stamping with just rite stampers French rose BG stamp &  memento tuxedo black for added interest.
•used vintage photo DI around the edges as well as around the space for my photograph.
•I printed the photograph ( It's a personal favorite pic :)) with laser printer. Inked the edges with VP. For the frame i used border punch & water colour paper & inked with mowed lawn, shabby shutters, peacock feathers & gathered twigs. I also added an acetate front layer for added gloss &  protection.

• for the embellishment part, i used some Puffy floral stickers i got from a local store & colored in the same scheme after giving a coat of gesso. Added some pearls & crystals on the center for bling. Also added a resin embellishment & paper doily.

•The butterflies are stamped, Colored & fussy cut. I especially love this blue one which i made in the same way like here. the flower is made of that same watercolor paper. The two petal layers are hand drawn & Inked up with peacock feathers distress ink. Some random script stamping & fussy cut. I used my scoring tool to get the dimension & i guess it worked fine. I also drew & cut this floral swirl.

•sentiment "happiness" is handwritten (Brustro fine liner pen) on thick water color paper fussy cut leaving a white border around & then glossy accents applied over it & completed the remaining words over the canvas itself.

I've initially given an eyelet opening with golden ribbon loop at the backside for hanging on the wall.

My mom loved it. Hope you liked it as well.
Do lemme know ur comments. Thanks for your time.
