Mixed Media Christmas card #2

Hello :)
As promised I am back with the second Finnabair inspired Mixed Media Christmas card for this weeks Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge.

For the second card I used a selection of buttons, beads, lace, staples, plaster board tape, glass gems and metal chain.

As before everything was adhered to a piece of cardstock then covered with White Gesso before adding the colour.

The colours for this card were Dylusions Cut Grass and Black and gold Maya Gold paint.

For this card I used only ultra fine gold glitter and Inca Gold to finish it off.

Some of the paint peeled off the glass pieces which gives it a worn vintage feel.

I really enjoyed making these cards, next on the list is a layout using this technique!
Have a great day thanks for stopping by :)

Mixed Media Christmas card

Hello :)
It's Friday and time for a new Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge!
This week we would like you to share projects which feature


Our lovely sponsors this week are Crafty Sentiments Designs who are offering one randomly selected winner 3 digital stamps from their fabulous collection.
As always there is gorgeous inspiration from the fabulous DT girls too!
Hop over HERE for all the details.

Inspired by Finnabair I made 4 cards playing with beads, buttons, paint, ink and glitter.

I first added some torn book paper, buttons, beads, gems and a bottle cap to a piece of cardstock.
I then covered the whole piece with Gesso.

I really wanted to keep the white space on the card so instead of spraying the ink I used a paint brush to add it where I wanted it. This gave me much more control.
I used Maya Gold in Gold and  Dylusions Post box red and black.

When it was dry I added a mix of ultra fine glitter and some chunky gold glitter.

To finish I added a little Inca Gold in gold with a sponge over some of the raised areas.

I'll be back soon with my second card using this technique soon :)
Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend!

Furry Friends at Crafts 4 Eternity

Good Morning :)
It's been a while but I'm back today with my Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe challenge project.
This weeks challenge is called 
and we would like you to share projects which feature a furry animal.
Our lovely sponsors Sassy Studio Designs are offering one randomly selected winner 4 images from their gorgeous collection and as always there is fabulous inspiration from the design team!
Hop over HERE for all the details, DT inspiration and entry.

My furry friend is a cute polar bear who has been in my collection forever! 
He doesn't need much colouring but loves a little sparkle so he has had some twinkling H2O's added.

The background is very simple, just a few pieces of Washi tape, some cotton thread, ink splatters and a few sequins.

That's all from me today :) Thanks for stopping by I hope you will join us this week and share your favourite furry friends with us!
Have a great day
