Hello crafty friends! Sandhya here and today I am sharing a min-media layering card using the September Aster stamp set. It was so much fun adding and building up texture layer after layer.
Mix-media Layering Card
First, I stamped and colored the cluster of asters using Copic markers. Then, I cut it out using my Brother Scan n cut machine. I also stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of white cardstock and fussy cut it out.
Next, I worked on the background. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Heavy cardstock and covered it with a layer of white gesso. Then, I ripped a random piece of pattern paper and adhered it down on the right half of the panel using matt gel medium. I found some drywall tape from my garage and adhered down strips of the drywall tape on the panel. This is an amazing texhnique for adding dimension and texture to mix media projects. For the next layer, I added white acrylic paint over the tape and the panel as a whole. Next, I added color by spritzing the panel with some water and sprinkling some color burst powders over it. I used a paintbrush to move the color around and add some splatters.
Then, I added more texture using a text stamp from the April 2020 KOM – Hope in Uncertainty and some black archival ink. Finally I added some more white paint using a pallette knife and added pieces of washi tape. I added white thread under the floral cluster and adhered it down in the finished panel and finished off with some white splatters to tie it all together.
