WWC301 – Dawn\’s Challenge: All About Occasions


Don\’t you just love \”twofer\” cards?  This card is the second from a pair of mixed media thank you cards that I made.  Click here to see the first card.  I created this one for  Watercooler Wednesday\’s  All About Occasions Challenge and Dawn is this week\’s hostess.

I was wanting to make some thank you cards to use this month and thought aqua, silver and white would be festive, bright and seasonal.

My Process:
  • I glued the die-cut Altenew Mega T from my first card to a watercolor paper panel. I then painted over the top of the card with gel media.
  • I added a layer of gesso and dried.
  • I mixed Mermaid Lagoon distress ink and Shimmer Spray and painted a layer on the card.
  • I pounced some Versamark ink across the panel and silver heat embossed.
  • I mixed a more concentrated mermaid lagoon and shimmer spray combination and brushed on random areas.
  • Buffed the embossing with a baby wipe to clean up and enhance the shine.
  • I added a die cut thanks sentiment. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. What a great mixed media card, Karen! SO clever! I love the colours and of course the fact that it's part of a 2 for 1!! I need to play more with mixed media! Take care and hope you have a lovely Christmas and a very safe and happy 2021! 🙂
