WWC306 – Michelle\’s Challenge: All About Occasions


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!

My Process:

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.
