Post 410: 2 Floral Mixed Media Cards- Warm Wishes

Hi friends!!

I'd like to share 2 Floral Mixed Media Cards today. This was part of my DT work for Bob n Betty. All the details are here. I was inspired by a few challenges & the Spring Season. I wanted to keep the look of Clean & Simple Mixed Media for these.

Both these cards are 5 by 7 inches in size. First, I took a couple of papers from Bob N Betty's Feel Like a Butterfly Paper Pack, cut them (4 by 6 inches) & distressed their edges. Then created mats for these panels (0.25 inches apart) and adhered all the layers. One of the layers was foam mounted to give the card some dimension. Then, created two colorful floral clusters/bouquets with flowers, gauze, twine, pollens, lace & dried up stalks/hay. Sprayed a couple of flowers with Lindys sprays to make them pop & then dry brushed Prima Finnabair's Heavy white gesso on the floral elements. Then, adhered these bouquets to the card front. For the sentiment, I wrote “warm wishes” with a black pen on 2 wood slices & mounted them on ornate embellishments to give the sentiments some height. Then, created a little splatter with Lindy’s sprays and white gesso. In the end, added a few drops of Nuvo drops & Perfect Pearls as a finishing touch.
