Hi faithful followers! Today I am sharing a mixed media card. I have recently been smitten with mixed media products and decided that today I would combine a few of my favorite on the front of the card I created.
The next step was to use my Want2Scrap Brick Stencil along with some Liquitex Light Modeling Paste. Again, I like the light modeling paste best because you still get texture, but it is not as heavy as the regular paste. I like to apply my paste using an old plastic gift card.
*See February 22nd's Follow Up Friday on how I do this.
After the modeling paste was completely dried, I inked over the bricks with Ranger Distress Inks. Then I added a thick coat of Ranger Distress Crackle Paint - Old Paper. I love to watch the cracks appear in this paint as it dries.
I added a sentiment that I thought went well with my brick theme using Spellbinders Label Eighteen and Spellbinders Rectangle - Large Die-cuts. The sentiment matting was cut twice from the same die, but with two different patterned papers. I cut the bottom die-cut in half and moved it slightly to reveal a small edge of matting under the yellow checked paper. A Want2Scrap key and keyhole were my final embellishments.
