I am loving using the weekends to enjoy the sun, from the safety of my Craft room to start using more mixed media type products. When my copy of Creative Stamping issue 95 came through the door, I thought it was perfect to use. I adore sea and ocean themes, as I feel happiest swimming around in the water, whether that be the sea or the local pool.
I have used the stamps from the magazine and fussy cut them to add onto the front of this card. I have also used a wave themed stencil I had from Daisy Mae to make a background piece from kraft card.
I used Distress Oxide inks for this and then my nod to mixed media I’ve used Nuvo Crackle Mousse over the heart section of the stencil that came with the magazine to give a subtle shine and texture.
Then I have distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give a rusty under the water vibe. I have then added that onto a piece of blue glitter and on a kraft card card-base.
The fussy cut elements have been added on to the card, with hot glue and some hessian/jute and some silver rope ribbon underneath.
Finally the pearl gems have been added, as I can’t not put any on a card lol. I’ve also added some twine onto the tag and a scroll made from some rolled up tea stained paper.
Hope you like it 🙂 x
