old friends

Aug 7 006
Happy weekend! I wanted to come back and share more with you about how I made this card. It was posted at the Crafty Power Blog originally.
  1. Cut a piece of corrugated paper. Ink it with Donna Salazar Mix’D Media Inks. Apply the pad directly to the paper. Use a piece of paper towel to dab away the excess ink and to help work it down into the valleys. The ink color will be less intense, but it adds an interesting background.
  2. Die cut cardstock with Spellbinders S5-123 Asian Accents. Cut the border in half, one for the top and one for the bottom and adhere. Use a good adhesive to make this detailed piece stay on the textured background.
  3. Cut the sentiment out from Jillibean Soup Grandma’s Lima Bean Soup. Distress the edges. Foam mount to the card.

4. Die cut Spellbinders S4-364 Spiral Blossom Four from thin, kraft paper. (For the border and this flower, Donna Salazar’s Mix’d Media Stax were used.)
5. Assemble the flower by rolling from the outside edge to the inside. Press several ink pads onto the flower petals.
6. Adhere a crystal button to the center and two pins to the back.
7. Adhere flower to card.
Another mixed media project for you. Wink, wink. :) Have a wonderful rest of the weekend! And next week is going to be FULL of giveaways, so stop back often!
thanks for always stopping by!
