Mixed Media Burlap Card

Hi Friends.........a mixed media burlap card with lots of handmade embellishments

........with a mixed media envelope too........
 ............Here is the set together..............

I got the pack of burlap cards with the envelopes by DCWV as part of a blog hop prize and really wanted to make a card for a special blogger friend who designs unique cards.

Here is a closer look, sequin waste stencil and homemade texture paste on the background, the sprocket die-cut is painted with a homemade glaze using acrylic paint and gel medium, the brown and silver foil is a chocolate wrapper and the flower is a handmade one with air dry cold porcelain and painted with acrylics, sentiment is computer generated, the twine is the Rs 15/- ball from the hardware store, a wooden button and little piece of cardboard complete this..

The envelope is stencilled using orange, gold and silver acrylic colors mixed with gel medium and sequin waste stencils.....

I do hope that 'someone' likes it as much as I have enjoyed making this :)

Please do leave your comments. I would love to read what you say and I would love to visit your blog too !!

A Mixed Media Heart Tag

 Hi Friends

I am sharing a tag I made for Unruly paperarts current challenge: Heartfelt

Used Kraft cardstock as base, a bit of gesso and the background colored randomly with Faber Castell water color pencils and misted to create the background.

Some stamping with Black archival ink and texture stamps. The hearts are die cut using scalloped hearts and textured with gesso and acrylic paints in red, orange, white and  pink, edged with white acrylic color and used Rock candy crackle paint on the edges of the tag and on the hearts.Have applied an aging glaze on the crackled surfaces using a mix of antique gold+payne grey + gel medium.

the sentiment is computer generated and matted on black cardstock, a bit of washi and punched border is added........a closer look at the glossy crackled hearts ........
