2 of us in Mixed Media style!

Hello to all!

Today Me again with a Mixed Media project to show you all, using the Roses stencil and designer oval frame chippie from Expression stamps and a lot of art mediums!
I had fun experimenting with this one!

1. What I did, First I used my purple color gelato and mixed it with Transparent gloss texture paste in different tones from light to darkest, as shown in the pic.

2. Using roses stencil I carefully created the rose background on my texture white sheet and keep it aside to let it dry or you can heat embossed it. Because of the transparency, the line texture appears so clearly with it. Now I added leaves to my roses with green glitter paste. Some of the mixed paste was left so without wasting it, I  randomly applied it using my palette knife from top to bottom as shown in the pic.

Here is the more clear pic showing more details using transparent texture paste and pretty rose stencil! You can see the texture white sheet underneath the paste:)

3. Using 2 shades of blue color tones gelato I mixed it in water and color the leftover white part lightly.
4. On the designer oval frame, I first colored it with black chalk paint and then applied different shades of Opal magic art medium.

5. I covered the couple chippie piece in yellow chalk paint and the flag banner with quotation 2 of us with black and highlighted with opal magic acrylic paint.

6. Now added the crochet lace and a die cut Victorian lace in black color.
7. Now embellished it with a lot of flowers, stickers, charms and I added my own handmade circle leaves in wire too.

8. In the last, I added that banner with a brad and a hanging charm and a metal butterfly

 and highlighted them too. Added Just us chit chat stickers in black with some crystal gems and lots of tiny thermocol balls in white for more textures and some splatters.

I hope you all enjoyed this MM card with lots of textures and fun!!!!

Holiday cheers using Expressions stamps & Stencils

Hello friends!

Christmas festivity is at its peak now and countdown started to celebrate coming New Year!!! So why not make some fun quick and easy cards using fabulous Expressions Stencils and stamps!

Card 1

Season's Greetings

I created a Northern light sky background using different DI on a glossy white CS and applied transparent texture paste using Garden Floral Spray stencil and added the crystal clear powder to it quickly. 

Now tear a strip out of the bottom part only to create more interest and textures. You can see the textures clearly in this pic:

I die cut Season's Greetings text 2 times out of textured white and black CS. And placed the black letters on the white one for more dimensions, the steps shown below how to do:

A lettering can be placed easily now.

Embellished it with different colorful half pearls. 

Garden Floral Spray

Card 2
Cheerful Triangle Trees

For this card, I die cut some triangles and using the waves stencil, I created the soft neon colorful waves pattern on them. Before drying quickly applied crystal clear powder directly.

On my black card base, I stencil the Merry Christmas word using Silver Glitter Paste and some stars to create the sky. Now using pop dots I adhered all the triangles as Christmas easy-peasy:) 
Cool stencil technique with glitter paste, right!

Card 3

Pink Roses

On a white panel, I placed the stencil as shown in the pics and used the only pink one side of this beautiful creation.

Roses stencil is so versatile, you can create so many designs with it. Here I created my own Pink roses using Zig watercolor brushes in soft hues to match my BG. And applied crystal clear Nuvo drops with my brush for a little sparkle. You can see the shimmer in the pic below.

Stamp the sentiment in pink. Now I placed the stencil BG on a pink panel.  Using double running Stitch Rectangle die cut a textured white panel and adhered that pink panel on it and then to the card base. Added a grey color lace with a gorgeous ribbon and twine with a bow. Placed those roses using pop dots. Finished it off with some sequins and splatters.

Cardstock: Textured white, whisper white and Raspberry CS

Card 4

 It's all about Birthday Celebration!

       First of all, I die cuts lots of Hexagon shapes in two sizes. Using my Misti I stamped all the tiny images together at a time:) work made easy and fast! Heat embossed them all. Using Distress inks I gave them an ombre effect in the centre to highlight the details of the images clearly.
Placed them up all to create a background with all Party elements but don't paste them! Took a picture of it with my cell phone (I found that no matter how hard you try to make an order when it comes to trimming with scissors, it's easy to get into a mess).

I die cut an another Hexagon from out of my front card base and placed an acetate sheet on it. And overlapped with one more window hexagon.

    Now I popped them up all to create a colorful and dimensional background and trimmed them with my scissors from all the edges. Die cut Let's Party sentiment out of glitter and white foam sheet and placed them on my base card.

The Birthday cake peeking from the inside is stamped on a black color hexagon, using the cutout front as my guide and heat embossed the image Now highlighted the embossing image using my Pigma Brush pens, how pretty effect:)
  On another white CS, I distressed it from all the sides using picked Raspberry ink. Stamped the banner at the top, sentiment too from the same set and heat embossed them. On a white strip, stamped another sentiment too and heat embossed it. Cut out two strips the golden glitter color foam sheet. Now place all the elements on my card using pop dots!
