Paper craft project no. 356: Embrace life one layer mixed media card


Hello! Thank you so much for the sweet messages you all left on my post yesterday! You all made this very pregger girl happy :o) We're now on DAY 3 of the STAMPlorations stamp spotlight week blog hop. Today, we're putting the spotlight on another sentiment set, Noteworthy.

Noteworthy-preview

To create my one layer mixed media card, I applied a thin coat of gesso on my card base, placed the happy flowers stencil over it, and applied Gelatos. I blended the colors by running a damp paint brush over the Gelatos. Then I watercolored the background with Sakura Koi watercolors. I randomly stamped the newsprint and postmark in coffee archival ink and finished the card by stamping the sentiment.

Hope you can hop today and check out the gorgeous makes by the STAMPlorations girls and our awesome guest designer Darnell! You'll find links to all our projects here. Hop along and you can win on of the prizes we've got up for grabs. 


See you tomorrow for DAY 4! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to smile :o)
