Mixed Media Flower Card

Hello! I made a card recently that I think will fit in with the Mixed Media Card Challenge theme for April – Flowers.  Hopefully it meets all of their criteria for mixed media…







20150315_124117The flower/leaves were stamped and heat embossed on watercolor paper, colored with Distress Inks and sprayed with pearlized water, using Confetti White Perfect Pearls.  I followed Jennifer McGuire’s technique:  Easy Distress Ink Watercolor + Pearlized Water (love her videos!).  For this card, I heat embossed the flower and leaves, then fussy cut to place on my card front.  I adhered the flower with foam squares for dimension and tucked the bird and leaves beneath the petals.

I cut the bird from chipboard and vintage sheet music, adhered them together and used distress inks to color.

I used double-sided adhesive to cut out the stand-up helper, and covered it with silk microfine glitter.

My “Just Because” sentiment was rubber stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Embellishments added:  Decorative black border stickers, black thin border stickers, ribbon, sequins, rhinestones
