Home Sweet Home Mixed Media Card

Hello everyone,

I would like to show you my latest creation with mixed media details galore:


I used distress spray ink to create the back panels. I cut three strips of white heavy cardstock, attached them to my cricut cutting mat so that they don't move around while I stain them. I sprayed some distress ink onto a wet paper towel and then dobbed it onto the panels. Now before I did that, I glued some cloud cutouts onto the panels. Once the inked panels were dry, I removed the glued cloud cutouts and had the white clouds on my panels. Pretty cool, huh?


I attached the sky panels onto my card using foam adhesive to give the card extra dimension.


The houses were Cricut cutouts. I used pink cardstock for the houses and then covered them with a very thick layer of Distress Crackle Paint Picket Fence. The panel behind the houses is a piece of white cardstock that I embossed with flower embossing folder, but before I ran the cardstock through my cuttlebug I used a brayer to apply distress ink Worn Lipstick onto the debossed side of the embossing folder.


The sentiment is also a Cricut cutout. I used pink cardstock for a cutout and then covered it with the same crackle paint I used for the houses. I added some crystal blings to it, to give it a little bit more vibrant look.


One more look at the card...
