"Corrugated Mixed Media Cards" by Amy C

Hello there ColourBlast fans! 
It’s Amy here.

From time to time, I enjoy making cards. 
 
Today, I wanted to create cards using corrugated cardboard, as I love the texture it provides - especially for a mixed media background!


I began by trimming and scoring both white and craft cardboard to the standard card size.

 

As I was making four cards, I simply painted Black Heavy Gesso with a foam roller onto a 12x12 corrugated paper.


 
After I heat-gun-dried it, I trimmed four cards then adhered raw chipboard shapes as desired with either gel medium or a strong waterproof glue.


Repeat the process of using the foam roller and paint, the raw chipboard with Black Heavy Gesso
Make sure you give it full coverage.


 

I wanted to achieve a rough whitewash effect against the black. By doing so, I combined some water with the White Heavy Gesso. To speed up the drying process here, I simply used the heat gun.


 
Using the following colours, I sprayed each card face:


1. Sapphire  Colour Spray

 
2. Violet Colour Spray



3. Sunset  Colour Spray



4. Coffee and Roadbase Colour Sprays & Bling Colour  Shimmer Spray.


Once the four card bases were completely dried, it was time to embellish each of the card bases. Keep it in mind, to use so few – to keep it simple.


Here are some closeups of the four completed cards. I really enjoyed creating these cards.
