Blessed

Hi friends! I'm popping in with a little mixed media card I made this weekend. I was so excited when my Zella Teal pre-order from The Funkie Junkie arrived, I just couldn't wait to play. You all know how much I love aqua, so this paper line is totally in my wheelhouse!


I was feeling in the mood for some mixed media, so cut a 4 x 5.25" piece of a neutral colored paper and backed with cardstock to thicken it up, since I knew I was going to be adding lots of media to it. I started with a coat of clear gesso, then stenciled over the top with a coat of white crackle paste. When this had dried, I added in some dragonfly blue color bloom spray.  I then dry brushed some mermaid sparkle Sparks acrylic paint to add a lighter aqua in and shimmer things up.  The distressing is done with some vintage photo distress stain and walnut stain distress oxide ink.

The verse is from the Scripture Medley 5 set, embossed on designer paper with embossing powder and then colored with the same sprays, paints and stains to match the background.  Both the bird and the blessed tag are from the Zella Teal ephemera pack and I distressed them with vintage photo and walnut stain to make them blend in a bit better. I finished off with distressed edges and a crumb cake card base.


All in all, it was a super fun afternoon getting my fingers all blue and inky! Our whole family seems to have caught a fall cold, and I was up at 3:30am this morning doing breathing treatments for Kellan. Both munchkins are home sick today, looking over my shoulder as I type, hoping I'll finish quickly. So I guess I better skedaddle. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
