Mixed Media Cards by Elisa Ablett


Hi Crafters,

Elisa here from the design team with my inspiration for October, a couple of mixed media cards featuring loads of your favourite Colour Blast by Bee Arty products.

Starting with a lovely bright background of 'smooshed' watercolour inks in bold colours - Slipper, Calypso and Mermaid. I spritzed water over the top once they were dry to re-activate the watercolours, this creates great 'salt' patterns in the colour. Let the background dry thoroughly and then lay your chosen stencil on top - I used 'Organised Chaos' Stencil for the first card along with 'Envy' Colour Paste and 'Directions' stencil for the second card along with 'Dusty Charcoal' Colour Paste.

Let's take a closer look at each card!

Awesome Card - Add some gold accents to your card, I used yellow sparkle embossing powder which gives a fantastic coverage for the title and also the gold accent on the die cut 'Abstract Circles' from Fiona Paltridges new collection. I also smooshed a bit of gold - Bling shimmer spray over the top of my Colour Paste to create gold accents on the stenciled background. Add some dodgy sewing for a bit of texture and you have a finished unique mixed media card.!

Brave card - After stencilling, add some shimmer by spraying Bling Shimmer Spray onto your craft mat and use a makeup sponge or your finger to rub some of the gold spray over the top of your stenciling to create gold shimmery accents. Use the yellow sparkle embossing powder on a spare piece of card and cut some triangles to add to your card. Fussy cut a few of the hanging feathers from the 'Possibility' paper (Follow your dreams collection) and colour using your watercolour inks to match your background.
