Mixed Media Card Real Friendship

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Card Real Friendship Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Tim  Holtz Prima Flowers


Hello, my dear crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I am so glad you are here again and play with us. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "BASED ON A BOOK". You can use pages of a book as part of your project or use a book as your inspiration. There are many way to interpret this challegne.

I created a mixed media card with an old book page and embellished it using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Buckle and Prima Flowers Tin Heart.

This is a 4.25" X 5.5" card that I used cream card stock as the card base. To create the watercolor effect on the background, I first sprayed the Distress Spray with various colors on the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil, then pressed the watercolor paper on the stencil. The colored paper was cut and pasted on the card base.

I torn an old book page and distressed it with Art Dauber and ink pads. The metal embellishments were colored with Distress Paints, and pasted on the layered book page and torn corrugate sheet.  I then added the sentiment with Tim Holtz Big Chat Sticker.

  4. What a beautiful card! The background is cute, me too love this technique of negative stenciling and use it a lot. Sometimes it gives better effects that the standard stenciling. Love all the details on the focal point, the old paper, corrugated cardboard and the metal embellishmets. Great colors as always! Hugs, Marzena
