Mixed Media Card by Jo Channon


Hello Again! 

I would like to share my latest make for the That's Crafty Design Team blog and it is a card which includes several of the stamps from the That's Crafty Clear Stamp set - Textures Collection set 3 which I am really loving using.

I started with the background which was created using the script stamp inked up with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and randomly stamped across cardstock.  I added some detail and dimension using the That's Crafty hole in the wall mask using the Texture sand paste which I have fallen in love with! 

I then created the other layer of the backdrop using a great little crafty item lollypop sticks! I laid these down in an adhoc fence layout and painted them firstly with black gesso and then dry brushed over with white gesso and some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink.  The highlight the fencing idea I edged the wood with some gold metallic paint from the Multi-Surface paint collection. 

To add the main detail I started with stamping 3 leaves from the stamp set and cut them out.  I used some paper flowers to embellish. The main focus is the very pretty butterfly which I stamped and coloured and topped with glossy accents.

I hope that you like the project and the layout, let me know what you think! 
Bye for now
