Today I am sharing another Mixed Media card using digi stamps from Power Poppy. I love the versatility of using a digital image with traditional card making techniques and it is so easy to do so!
I used the colors from the Power Poppy Hues "Buzzing with Color” Challenge and also linking to the Simon Monday “Stencil It” Challenge and The Challenge #88 “Keywords”(Flowers, Watercolor).
If you have not had a chance to visit the challenge blogs yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using a photo editing software, import the main floral digital image from Tulips and the sentiment from Roses and Chamomile from Power Poppy (I used the retired My Digital Studio™ from Stampin’ Up!). Print both out onto a piece of 8 ½” x 11” Whisper White cardstock, die cut the Tulips image with a stitched rectangle die.
2). Watercolor the tulips using an AquaPainter™ with watercolor pencils, graphite pencil and distress inks. Use Hickory Smoke Distress Ink with a chevron stencil to add stenciling to the background. Apply shimmer with a clear glitter pen over the stenciling as well as the petals and white highlights with an extra fine white paint pen.
4). Trim the sentiment, add the flag points using a hexagon punch, mount onto Basic Black cardstock and create the points again with the punch.
5). Emboss a piece of gray cardstock with a lattice embossing folder (retired SU!), trim and mount onto white cardstock, trim and mount onto black cardstock and adhere to the white card base.
6). Mount the entire tulip focal image panel with dimensional foam, add the looped silver cord and mount the sentiment (with dimensional foam as well). Finish off the card with a few rhinestones in the corner.
