Hello and welcome. For the The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, I\’ve created a mixed media card for my design team project and I love the shimmer and shine it has in person. This card was so fun to make!
I tore three snippets of book text from a dictionary and then glued them to a card panel with gesso and a wet brush. I used gel medium then the page and then another layer of gel medium.
I added a layer of gesso over the top and dried.
Next I added some pencil scribbles and doodles.
I dipped the panel in a combination of die ink mixed with shimmer spray. Dried then repeated. This gives gorgeous shine to the card.
I heat embossed the image and sentiment and mounted on a colored A2 card base.
