Post 464: Two Vintage Mixed Media Cards

Hi friends!

I'd like to share 2 Vintage Mixed Media Cards today. I made these as part of my DT work for AB Studio by the amazing Aga Baraniak.

I used AB Studio's new In Wonderland Paper Collection and Vintage Elements along with Stencil 61 and Stencil 3. These papers are absolutely gorgeous & if like me, you enjoy making vintage projects, these are definitely for you! I loved working with them, they are beautifully designed by Aga, great quality, thick & double sided. In case you are curious about the products & wish to explore more, all the AB Studio products can be purchased from their online store, HERE. They offer economical international shipping rates & ship worldwide. For more inspiration & ideas, you can check out the AB Studio Facebook group

Post 462: Floral Birthday Card (Inspiration for Craft Stamper Magazine's Take It Make It Challenge- August,2018)

Hi friends!!
Hope you are well.

Craft Stamper Magazine's Take It Make It Challenge for August is live. It is an anything goes stamping challenge with beautiful prizes on offer and you could win the chance to Guest Design & be published in the magazine, so please read the rules and do link up your gorgeous creations :) To visit the Craft Stamper blog, please click HERE.

For the inspiration, I made a floral card with a newly acquired stamp in my stash. Kassa's Bloom (Item- 14014) by Stampotique Originals Rubber Stamps. It was stamped three times onto a panel of Canson Watercolor Paper using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. The sentiment is from Mudra Craft Stamps- Purely Sentiments Labelled. I did watercoloring using zig clean color real brush markers and created a few splatters of white and black ink, then darkened the edges of the panel with Black Soot Distress Ink and foam mounted it on a 5 by 7 inch black card base. In the end, added a few dots with a white gel pen. 

Here are some photos of the card:

Post 460: Vintage Mixed Media Card (Inspiration for SDC304- Stampotique Designers Challenge- Number It)

Hi folks!!

I'd like to share a Vintage Mixed Media Card which I made as inspiration for Stampotique Designer's Challenge (SDC) #304- "Number It". I've used wooden numbers here as well as washi tapes with numbers in the background. Please read the rules and do join the challenge with your beautiful creations, there are prizes to be won! For lots more ideas and inspiration, check out the Stampotique Originals Rubberstamps Facebook Group.

I've used Stampotique Originals Rubber stamps: Big Bee- Item no. 3008 & Quotes #1- Item no. 8995 here. For the background I used washi tapes, Prima Finnabair's heavy white & clear gesso, rust paste, distress inks & oxides and wooden numbers. To color the bee, I used watercolors and then added some scribbles and doodles with a white gel pen. To create texture, I added golden net and black thread behind the bee. In the end, I created some ink splatter, matted the panel in black and foam mounted it on a 5 by 7 inch white card base. 

Here are some photos of the card:







Thanks a lot for your precious time :)

Post 459: Two Mixed Media Cards

Hi friends :)
How are you ?

Today, I'd like to share Two Mixed Media Cards. This is part of my DT work for AB Studio by Aga Baraniak. I used 4 of their beautiful stencils (linked at the bottom of this post). Their online store is currently having a 10% off summer sale till 31st July where they have many beautiful rubber stamps, stencils, papers etc To check out the store, please click HERE. Also, there are lots of ideas, inspirational projects & product updates shared on the AB Studio FB Group, so please do join in :) 

Pair of Mixed Media Cards



Mixed Media Card 1: Be Authentic 








Mixed Media Card 2: Create Art








Synopsis of the Process:

For these cards, I started with thick watercolor paper and did some intuitive coloring with inks and paints (which basically means I had fun putting down colors :) ) then I added washi tapes and black gesso in some areas. I did background stenciling with AB Studio Stencils 61, 36, 24 and 22 using inks, paints & white gesso. To add more interest, I did background stamping using archival inks. Then created some ink splatters. I used die cuts and thread to create the cluster and used quote chips as the focal elements. Added a few details with a white gel pen. Finally, darkened the edges of the panels, matted them in black and foam mounted them on 5 by 7 inch white card bases. 

Supplies Used:

AB Studio Stencil 22
Prima- Finnabair Heavy White & Black Gesso, Soft Matte Gel
Sizzix- Tim Holtz Alterations Dies Mixed Media Dies and Gearhead
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Quote Chips
Ranger's Distress Oxides, Inks, Archival Inks, Distress Paints
Mudra Stamps- Go Confidently Mini Stamp
Washi Tapes

Thanks a lot for your precious time :)
Stay Blessed!
