Last month as part of my DT brief for Manor House Creations I had to dabble with Mixed Media. My initial reaction was - eeeeek! Me? Mixed Media? - uh oh!!
I did my research and watched a number of You Tube videos that showed various MM techniques and I started to play around with what I had in my stash......here's the end result - I hope you like it :-)
Here's a few details about how this came together using these materials.......
First I stamped the card base with a script stamp using
Brown Staz On ink. Using the Crafter’s Workshop Mini Harlequin Mask I randomly
inked sections with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled these with clear embossing powder
and heat embossed. This forms a resist so that when I sprayed these areas with
Spritz Bed of Roses the harlequin sections resisted the paint.
I adhered half a
doily to the top of the card, added spots of glue and sprinkled pink German
Glass Glitter over the glue. For the bottom left corner I used a flourish mask
and texture paste. When dry this was inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink and
outlined with a fine tipped brown pen.
Using Vintage Photo Distress Ink (and a
few splotches of Spritz) I stamped the large swirl stamp across the base and
inked a few bare sections using the harlequin mask again. I outlined some of
the harlequins with the brown pen. My background was now finished and ready to
The Scrap Cake One Moment in time tag was dry embossed and
inked whilst the Bella Fleur- de-Lis Chipboard Shape was also dry embossed. The
Burgundy Imagine flower was swiped with white gesso and sprayed with Dazzling
Diamonds Glimmer Mist for shine.
It certainly takes time to create a piece like this - well it did for me anyway lol :-)
I'll be back with more in a day or so....thanks for visiting.

This month Manor House Creations is sponsoring Creative Scrappers for their 200th sketch!! so a few of us DT girls had a fun play with this month's Creative Scrappers sketch using MHC flowers and The Scrapcake Papers - also carried by MHC.
Here's the fab sketch -

The papers are Scrap Cake's One Moment in Time papers and they are soft and subtle which I love:-)
