Mixed Media Birthday Card

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Now that the recipient has received this...I'll share it with you today.

I've added clear gesso to the background with a spatula.  It's been  misted with some Dylusions sprays and allowed to dry.  Next I mixed up some glass bead gel with more of the spray and added to the card with a stencil.  Added another quick mist of a Dylusions spray next.  When it was dry I added some heavy white gesso through the same stencil and then used a baby wipe to removed some of it.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Strathmore 140# watercolor and Neenah solar white
Ink:  Ranger jet black archival
Stamps:  STAMPlorations Noteworthy
All the other stuff:  ARTplorations Happy Flowers stencil, clear gesso, heavy gesso, glass bead gel, Dylusions mists
