Well, not today, sisters! I've had something of a dry spell of mojo lately... but this weekend I took those mini heaps and made magic! Woooo! Look at all these textures:
I think it helps because I was making a card for the most recent Mixed Media Card Challenge, whose theme is Red with the option of having hearts.
I love working in mixed media, and I adooooore Valentine's Day cards, so it was a win, win, win all around and my mojo came surging right back!
Many of you have been wondering what I would do with my gel medium resist background, and I'm sorry to have kept you in suspense. I'll remedy that immediately by showing you the card!
For my heart, I had this wooden piece that I altered. I smeared texture paste all over it, then added red micro beads.
I pressed some larger red rhinestones into it, and then drizzled the whole thing with White Picket Distress Spray Stains. In the end, it kind of looked like a sprinkled cookie, which was unintentionally cool.
Here's the end product:
I used corkboard sticker letters, added a glittery red feather and some baker's twine to complete the look. I just LOOooooove how this baby turned out and I know it will make someone's Valentine's Day extra special!
I'm also going to play along with
Mixed Media Mojo - Hearts with option of paper piecing
Mixed Media Monthly - Glitter! Check!
Frilly and Funkie - Enjoy Embossing (emboss resist background)
