Mixed Media Mother’s Day Card

Hello Everyone,

Today I’m sharing a Mixed Media Mother’s Day card with you that was inspired by a card I watched Marta Lapkowska create on her youtube channel “Maremi SmallArt”.  I attempted several backgrounds for this card before I was happy with it ( I did save the others for future projects). I loved the colors but they were too dominant for me so I dry brushed them with some gesso. Once it had dried I sponged on some more gesso and then sponged a third time. Once I was happy with it I began playing around with embellishments. These flowers by Prima are gorgeous but I wasn’t completely sold on them for the card until I dry brushed them with some gesso which blended them in with the background nicely. Once the card was in the mail and I sat looking at the photos I decided I should have gessoed the bg one more time, but as they say – live and learn ;O)



For the inside I decided to ink the stencil to keep the card flowing:



Well I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and that it’s inspired you to create something of your own.

Thanks for stopping by, have a safe and creative day everyone :O)
