I hope you've had a good week so far and ready to enjoy the upcoming weekend.
I've something that's a little different from my usual styles to show you today.
I'm lovin all the Mixed Media creations out there now, especially the work
by the super talented Pamellia.
Her work is outstanding and she has the most
wonderful tutorials. My experience with this type of style has usually ended up in the
round file as they looked like mud. Today's share is baby steps but I'm happy with it.
I was able to get my hands on some Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps and dies at SSS.
Jumping on the bandwagon I know but I LOVE these cute images.
I was inspired by this card by Sylvie
. I love the colours and background she created.
I started with a 5x5 inch piece of hot pressed watercolour paper, ripping the edges.
Pulled out my much neglected Tombo markers and added them to an acrylic block,
misted with water and stamped on the paper.
I then taped a MB Texture Disperse stencil onto the paper and added Dreamweaver
Pearlescent embossing paste. This has a lovely shine.
In keeping with the pastel look, image was stamped with
Memento London Fog and coloured with Copic Markers.
Removed a section and added MFT Zipper die and a Prima vintage trinket.
Cheesecloth dyed with TH Evergreen Bough Distressed Ink and water and then
added to the back to peek out the top and side.
