Cards, Tag and A Mixed Media Frame

Hello my crafty friends!

Thanks for popping in today. I hope you are having a great vacation. I have quick cards using one of my favorite background technique - Distress Ink Background with Zig Clean Real Brush Pens, along with one additional project. I hope you'll love my project.

This is a picture heavy post, hope you will stay till the post ends.

Let's start,

1. Super Girl + Distress Ink Background

You all have seen this technique various times on different blog but I am quite addicted to this background color and one of my favorite color scheme.

This technique is quite easy but need practice to achieve a good blending background. I wanted to revisit this technique again here with this newly launch stamps i.e. "Super Girl"

Card Details:
  • I started to work on my card by blending different ink on a watercolor paper.
  • Next I splatter some water to remove some of the distress ink.
  • Once everything is dried, I splatter white acrylic paint mixed with water with old toothbrush and brush.
  • Next I stamped sentiment in Versamark ink on background with mini-impresso tool and then covered it with Gold embossing Powder from Ranger and heat set it.
  • Next I cut city scene from black CS and adhered them at the bottom of the card.
  • Colored Super Girl stamp with zig clean brush pen and fussy cut it.
  • Adhered with foam tape on one of the building.
  • Complete card with gold sequins. 

2. Simple Card with Magnolia Stamp

Card Details
  • I started with 5x7 base card and little smaller panel from green and kraft CS.
  • Next I stamped Magnolia flower on a watercolor paper and colored it with zig clean real brush pens.
  • Fussy cut the stamped flower and adhered on a panel of kraft and green CS along with jute thread.
  • Stamped sentiment on a right bottom corner so that it can be visible enough to read.
  • Completed card with gold sequins.

3. Stand By you Card

Card Detail

  • I started with stamping all critters from the stamp set on a watercolor CS.
  • Colored them with one Brown color of different shades and fussy cut all.
  • Adhered a panel of Navy Blue colored CS on a 5x7 base card.
  • Stamped sentiment and heat set it with gold embossing powder.
  • Assembled all the fuzzy cut stamped critters and complete the card with gold sequins.

4. Simple Mixed Media Tag

Tag Detail
  • I started with priming the chipzeb largest tag with white gesso.
  • Once it was dried I randomly stamped the newly launch checker stamp with archival ink.
  • Next I took Distress Ink, mixed it with water and randomly did ink smooshing technique.
  • Dried everything with heat tool and stamped sentiment from Bookmark stamp set.
  • To give little bit of contrast look, I have stamped Rose Bud Stamp on a watercolor CS and colored it with zig clean brush pens.
  • Fussy cut it and adhere it with foam tape.
  • Complete the tag with gold sequins. 

5. Mixed Media Frame

I want to share little bit about this frame. It's a Wall hanging. It's a Desk Frame. Fold-able.

So let's see,

A brief Detail

  • I started with MDF Frame, then I adhered medical bandage to give a bit texture. 
  • Next I applied Black Gesso as I want to give all embellishment a gold and copper effect.
  • Then I started applying all the materials like some metal gears, keys, some mechanical parts, chipzeb and some sea shells.
  • Once everything is dried, I applied Gesso on everything except few chipzeb.
  • Then I applied Red and Violet Paint on MDF Frame. Once the paint is dried I started applying gold and copper paint with my fingers on embellishments and little bit on MDF frame.
  • Next I applied white paint with my dried brush to give extra effect.
  • To complete the frame I adhered flower, words and butterfly chipzeb.

I have used all the possible chipzeb and some junks, shell, gears, etc.. So this is how full frame look  like,

I hope you all liked my projects today. Thank you for stopping by. If you liked my project, please leave your comment, I love to hear from you.
