Vintage Mixed Media Get Well Card- A Color, Sketch and Theme Challenge :-)
I decided to spend some time in my craft room this past evening and create a Mixed Media card using the PPA239Color Challenge along with the Mojo Monday #384 Sketch and FM197 "We're Heading to the Farm" Theme.
Again, I hope you will take the time to visit the above sites- gorgeous Design Team creations as well as wonderful galleries and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Cut the rooster image from the retired Beau Château Designer Series Paper and use Stampin’ Write markers to add additional color- Real Red, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.
Use Soft Suede Classic Ink with the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge to add additional distressing and sponge Crumb Cake along with Soft Suede Classic Ink around the edges with a Sponge Dauber.
Use a Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen marker to add the white highlights and apply Plaid® Gloss Mod Podge®, over the entire image (be careful around the colored areas since the Mod Podge® is also water based).
Mount the rooster image onto Real Red cardstock and carefully cut around the edge, sponge with Soft Suede Classic Ink and distress with your fingernail.
Ink the retired background stamp, French Script with Soft Suede Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.
Distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and add additional Soft Suede Classic Ink using a Sponge Dauber.
Mount the distressed Crumb Cake background onto a piece of Real Red cardstock. Use a Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede Classic Ink and a honeycomb stencil to add additional detail to the background.
Adhere the 7/8” Sahara Sand Lace Trim to the sides and add the previously embossed Real Red strips (embossed with the retired Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and Soft Suede Classic Ink sponged over the embossing and the edges were distressed as well).
Cut a panel from Soft Suede cardstock and emboss using the Big Shot™ and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Use your finger to apply Gesso® to the honeycomb background and when dried, “huff” onto the French Script background stamp to re-moisten the Soft Suede ink and stamp over the embossed panel.
Add a layer of Plaid® Gloss Mod Podge®, to the honeycomb panel and mount onto the background panel.
Add the knotted Hemp Twine and adhere the entire panel onto the Crumb Cake card base.
Create the rolled roses from Real Red cardstock using the 1 ¼” and 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punches (punch two from the 1 ¾” Punch and one from the 1 ¼” Punch, hand cut a wavy spiral toward the center on each one, run each through the retired Crimping Tool, roll up and adhere the center using a Hot Glue Gun).
Add the Soft Suede cardstock leaves and roses to the panel and use your finger to apply Gesso® to both the petals and leaves. Once the Gesso® has dried, add Plaid® Gloss Mod Podge® over the roses and leaves.
Stamp the sentiment using Soft Suede Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and create the banner ends using the Hexagon Punch. Use a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Classic Ink to add distressing and stamp with the large splatter image and Soft Suede Classic Ink.
Mount the sentiment onto Real Red cardstock, add the banners with the Hexagon Punch, apply Plaid® Gloss Mod Podge® and adhere to the card front along with the rooster image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add Pearls to the corners of the card and sentiment. Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Soft Suede Classic Ink along all of the edges of the Crumb Cake card base to finish off the card.
