Clean and Simple Mixed Media Card

Sometimes, when I think about mixed median, I think it is very messy and needs lots of layers. But in my crafty world, it doesn’t have to me. I’ve created this clean and simple mixed media card with a few different products along with a clean and simple sentiment. You could easily change up the sentiment for any prefer to suit the occasion. 

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR Bumblberry Papercrafts - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Clean and simple mixed media card

Creating the mixed media panel

To start off, adhere the Altenew Feathered Leaves stencil to a piece of Plum Punch Gina K Designs card stock. Next using a spatula, spoon out some Altenew Embossing Paste on to a glass mat or other smooth surface.

Using the spatula, start to apply some of the embossing paste over the stencil at one end of the card.  With a colour of your choice, add a small dab of liquid watercolour next to the embossing paste on your glass mat.  For this card, I used Candied Apple by PinkFresh Studios. 

Mix a small amount of the liquid watercolour in the paste to taint it and start applying this over the stencil onto the cardstock. Make sure you overlap with the paste already applied to blend into the white paste.  Keep adding colour and applying the paste over the stencil for an ombre look. When all the design is covered, remove the stencil and wash immediately.  The panel should be left to dry for a couple of hours or over night. 

Trim the stencilled panel down and foam mount this onto a long card. Stamp and heat embossing in Opaque Bright white embossing powder from WOW! a sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips stamp set onto black card. Trim this down into a thin strip and adhere to the front of the card. Lastly, add a few sequins to embellish the card.
