Mixed Media Mother’s Day Card
Hi there, friends! Vivian Keh here today to share with you a really fast technique that uses Core’dinations 110 lb cardstock to create dramatic backgrounds quickly and easily.
Let’s get started….
TIP: If your image is detailed like this one, I recommend using a “fine” or “super fine” embossing powder.
Step 3: Wet your surface with a light misting of water. Then spritz with your choice of mists. If you use primary colors, they will blend beautifully together to create secondary colors.
TIP: Use more intense hues where you want your heat embossed stamped images to really pop. You can see I used a bright red in the centers of these blossoms.
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial today and that you’ll give salt a try during your next mixed media craft session.
