Mary picked the theme for this fortnight for the Christmas card club - mixed media for Christmas
This was a challenge for me. I have done some mixed media on journal pages but not usually on cards.
I stamped Stamp It stamp Kings of Orient onto white card. I have had this stamp for many years.
Painted background with black gesso and burnt sienna acrylic paint. Painted over star stencil with moulding paste. Added glitter and glitter pen to large star. Added dots of glitter. Printed precoloured holly leaves from We are 3 Holly Leaf with berry printable. Added red pearls. Doodled with white gel pen.
If you would like to see the cards made by the other members of the Christmas Club their blogs are listed down the left side of my blog.
I would like to add my card to the following:
A Inky Mess 16 - anything mixed media
Country View challenges - stencils
Crafty Animals 8 - anything with an animal (camels)
Crimbo Crackers 146 - anything Christmas
Cute Card Thursday 505 - stars
Daisy Chain 14 - Christmas/winter
Inspiration Destination 138 - anything goes
Mix it Up 7 - anything goes + stencilling (stencil stars)
Moving along with the Times 59 - Christmas animals (camels)
Retro Rubber challenge 76 - anything goes use an old stamp (my stamp is more than 5 years old probably more than 10 years old)
Welcome to my blog
I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
