This may be my favorite card I've ever made. Yes. That is a big statement.
The challenge going on over at STAMPlorations is Stamps and Washi Tape.
For some reason, washi always makes me think messy mixed media... oh darn... I HATE that. *Snicker*
First, I applied a layer of gesso to a piece of deep red card stock, let it dry, and then sprayed it with a concentrated burst of Festive Berries and Black Soot Distress Inks.
Once that was dry, I added some layers of black and white washi tape, and some grungy stamps from the Mixed Media Grunge set.
I added a black doily, some more grunge around the edges and one of the birds from
SmallBirds - The Bee's Knees. To give the bird a more charcoally effect, I used Faber Castell Artist Pens and smudged as I went along the lines. I also drew some sketchy circles using the same pens.
Yeah - pretty much in love.
This card is going over to the following challenges:
Mixed Media Card Challenge - Collage
