It’s been a while since I made a truly shabby card dripping with mixed media and vintage-y goodness. So I took some time between design team gigs to make this fun card using a new-to-me JustRite stamp set.
To start, I used a palette knife to spread three colours of paint on the background. Then I mixed up some custom modeling paste with a dye reinker applying it with a Tim Holtz stencil. When that was dry, I added more stenciling, the letters, with just normal paste then applied gold embossing powder and heat set it. It will bubble a lot but in the end it looks really dimensional and interesting. If you want a smoother result, let the paste dry on its own, then heat set the powder.
Then I started to layer all kinds of fun bits and bobs. The colouring (Prismacolor) was already done another day so I just had to die cut the Voilette panel and add some glass glitter to the edges. It took a while to decide where everything was going to go, I kept adding more then laying the panel on top, then I would take it off and level all the layers out with pieces of fun foam.
To finish this card off, I added some brads, flowers and ribbon. I especially love how the metallic and glitter washi tapes look peeking out here and there. The gold straw is also a favourite. I took a blue and white flowered straw and painted it with gold leafing paint!
