Hello Again Crafty Friends!
My project today features unique products from the Little Birdie Crafts company. I have a mixed media card using their adorable Woodland Stories Embellishments pack.
To start, I took a piece of the wood grain paper from the Texture Brew paper pack. I knew I wanted to do a layered and grunged up look so I took the wood grain paper and stamped on it in black ink using the Whimsical Garden stamp. Then I added some black in to the edges to give it a worn look.
I hunted through the enormous pack of embellishments - they are all so gorgeous it's hard to pick only a few! They have this beautiful glittery accents on all the pieces and the little birds are so darn cute! Once I picked my tag to start, I started playing with making a scene that I liked, incorporating flowers and birds to go along with the colors I was trying to use in my project.
I used a piece of white paper to stamp the sentiments from the Thinking Of You stamp set. I did the top portion in black and the "hugs" portion in heat embossed copper. I wanted the sentiment to really stand out.
I layered all my pieces together and wanted the orange color to shine through so I cut a feather using the Thin Cut Metal Dies. I darkened it up a little using a green ink and a bit of the black. I also added some of the banners from the pack of embellishments so that I could spread my design out across my cardfront.
After adhering everything down, I absolutely needed a little bling to draw the eye. I chose to use the Pearl Drops in Lemon Whip to add some yellow tones to my card.
I really loved how this turned out and I'm proud to be stepping out of my comfort zone and doing mixed media. I enjoy the limitless possibilities of using many different kinds of media to make my idea come to life.
I hope I've inspired you to try something new and that you enjoy reading about my process. Have a great day!
