Wings and foil - that's what it's all about at the Mixed Media Card Challenge in May. Butterflies, insects, birds, angels... find some wings and show us your mixed media skills.
We received a graduation announcement and it had a wonderfully 1960s/hippie vibe to it. I checked out the gal's school website for her colors and purple it was. Even found her class motto "live, love, dream". (How did we ever live without the Internet???) So off I was...
Stitched it with a layer of vellum to a cardbase that I smooshed and splattered with leftover watercolor before splattering some water droplets onto it which I covered with platinum embossing powder and heated. TIP: Heat from underneath the paper to melt the powder if it is only "attached" with water.
The feathers from Lifestyle Crafts (wings have feathers, right?) were die cut from watercolor paper and painted purple and blue before being edged with platinum embossing powder. A smidge of washi finished the card.
Voila! A somewhat unconventional, but very personalized graduation card.
Since I used NBUS - the feather die and the sentiment stamp - I'm joining the "New" fun at A Blog Named Hero.
