Mixed Media Tag

Hello everyone,

Today I am post very different technique which I want to do from very long time but I was not able to do or else I can say I didn’t get opportunity to make mixed media project. I made this tag for a one ATC swap group on facebook, I hope you’ll stay till post ends.

Ok so this was my first try, and used homemade Gesso and Modeling Paste. For colors I have used zig markers and distress oxide ink. I was expecting a better result with use of modeling paste as I can’t see stencil and gold embossing powder. I think I need to make another modeling paste.

Here are some close up images,

Butterfly Card + Distress Background

Hi everyone,

Summer has started here in Chennai, so early :(. Hope you all take care in this summer, drink plenty of Lemon Water (Nimbu Pani). So back to my card, I have made some cool card with distress background and butterfly using Mudra Butterfly flutter stamp set. Basically this card is inspired by Yainea. So here is my card,

Birthday Card 7

I have used for background “Dusty Concord”, “Salty Ocean”, and “Cracked Pistachio” distress ink to make background and I randomly start adding color and before adding another color I make sure that first color is dried. I stamped same stamp over background as starting from biggest butterfly, I have used “Seedless Preserves”, “Chipped Sapphire”, and “Twisted Citron”.

Birthday Card 7-1

To make pop up butterfly, I stamped same butterfly on acetate sheet with archival black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. And stick over background stamp.

Birthday Card 7-2

I have also stamped same big butterfly inside the card also and water-colored with “Seedless Preserves” distress ink.

Birthday Card 7-3

This is the inside of the card, stamp is from mama elephant Birthday wishes and heat embossed with princess gold embossing powder.

I hope you like my card, please share your view and suggestion below comment box.

Background Techniques

Hi all,

Today sharing some little but useful background techniques using some Distress Inks, Heat Embossing and Bokeh technique. Let’s see my three cards,

Let’s start with one by one cards, stats from left to right:

Bokeh Technique: I used 5″x7″ watercolor cardstock and make a distress background using Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar inks. For Bokeh Technique you will need stencil (I have used heart die and make own stencil), and any white color pigment ink. Once you achieve desired background, let it dry naturally or you can use heat gun then put your stencil and simple apply white ink over stencil, let it dry as pigment ink takes time to dry naturally (heat gun is fast way to dry). Noe your background is ready. Embellish as per your idea and imagination.

Heat Embossed Background: For this technique you will need washi tape/painters tape, versamark ink, Embossing Powder (any color, any company doesn’t matter) and heat gun. So first cut your base card (i have used normal white cardstock, measures 5″x7″),  and adhere washi tape as per your choice (I did diagonally), and apply versamark over it. Carefully remove all washi tape and sprinkle embossing powder, if you can see any powder over washi tape area then just remove it thru paint brush. Melt embossing powder using heat gun and here you go your background is ready (you can use distress ink instead of Heat Embossing). Embellish as per your idea and imagination.

Distress Ink Background (Starburst Effect): For this gather some supplies like choice of distress ink, masking tape/washi tap and watercolor paper. Make a center of a card and mark with pencil. tear two masking tape bigger than your watercolor cardstock. Put one tape over pencil mark and another over it (basically you need to make triangle shape, narrow or broad as per your like). and start applying distress ink from corner where both tape meet (pencil mark) and go outwards (make sure do not go over tape and for this effect only apply more ink near to mark and less ink outside). Now for next you need to remove tape carefully and put one tape slightly over distress ink background which we just created and then another tape over it and make again triangle. Same way you can go ahead till you reach first color background. Embellish as per your idea and imagination.

I hope this three technique inspire you to make new cards. Please leave your valuable suggestions/view below in comments.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon with new technique and card till then happy crafting.

Love Card + Handmade Embossing Folder

Hi all,

How are you? It been long time I have posted here, so here is a quick cards with some handmade techniques. Yes, Handmade technique non other than Embossing folder. I have made this card for Valentine’s Day. So here it goes, have a look:

love-4

Here I have made embossing folder with Heart die (smallest one). I die cut almost many times to achieve a embossing folder. This handmade embossing has 5 layer (I think this more than enough).

So here is small process to achieve Heart Emboss Background. You need handmade embossing folder (any pattern), and silicon sheet/foam sheet (here I have used 5″x7″ sheet as my card is of same size). That’s it. Now take your bigshot machine, place your acrylic sheet -> handmade embossing folder -> your cardstock on which you want embossing effect ( I have used my watercolor paper) -> and last second acrylic plate. Roll at least 5 times to get proper effect. I hope you can see effect.

love-2

 

I have used Mudra stamp (Love) and gold embossed over vellum sheet and DCAM Alphabet Die and also gold embossed it. Adhered each elements over my distressed and Handmade Embossing background. To finish my card I splatter gold perfect pearl powder (mixed with water) and some flower sequins.
