Shabby chic mixed media cards

Hi everyone, 
Hope you're doing good. 

Meher here from Meher Creations back with a new post based on our absolutely amazing new challenge of this month. 
I've created 2 beautiful mixed media shabby chic cards using various elements. It was fun picking up things from the challenge list and creating these projects. I chose to use some texture pastes, stencils, laces, flowers and gesso for additional textures from the challenge list. I've a step by tutorial listed below with some pictures captured while creating these cards. 

Step by step instructions:
  •  Take two white cardstock measuring 8*6 and score at 4" (I have used floral oriental cardstock) 
  • Take some pattern papers from Beary hugs paper pad. (I've used two sheets from beary hugs and one sheet from my stash) 
  • Use two different stencils for two cards and apply Prima light paste randomly.
  • Mix black gesso with water and splatter it over both the pattern papers.
  • Pick some flowers, lace, Mudra Chipzeb and other embellishments to decorate your card. (I've used Mudra chipzeb frame on one card; Fairy tales and floral frames chipzeb on the other card) 
  • Create a embellishment using Prima mould and paper clay to give a beautiful carved texture on your card. I painted the embellishment using Prima chalk edger to give a soft pastel look. Stick all the embellishments and flowers using finnabiar soft gloss gel. I also used some micro beads randomly using glossy accents.
  • Mix white gesso with water and splatter all over. I also used some color bloom shimmer sprays to splatter on the card to add more depth.
  • Stick this card layout on the white cardstock card and your card is ready.

I hope you like my post and thank you for stopping by.
