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!
