Mixed Media Dreamy Sea Card


Following the More Mixed Media Challenge
Please click the banner above and join in!

Mixed Media Sea Card!

I started out by clear embossing some elements on the background

 


Next I added
some shimmer
sprays in the
colors:
Polished Jade
London Blue






Next I added a fussy cut anchor with some shiny eyelash, a mermaid die cut and some cheese cloth.

For final touches, I used Ranger's Speckle embossing powders, 
popped up the banner with a double layer of foam and put it all together.





Before it was finished, I added a back drop / frame of white to really make that shimmer pop! And, added some Sparklet gems to top it off and add that mystery of the deep. (Treasure!)





Here are a few closeups of the card so you can see that I added a blended Sparklet gem pack and the shimmer and stamping that was added to create all the layers! 


Love the Sparklets, Stamp set or elements of this Mixed Media piece I created?

I created a sympathy card as one of the children I had the chance to love passed this week. He will be missed and was loved by all!



I used two dies, one background die and one for daisies. Before putting the intricate piece on top, I cut out a simple oval. 
It created a beautiful opening!

Three simple tiny gems in the middle of the flowers along with a vellum sentiment finished it off.

SIMON SAYS STAMP CHALLENGE
THINK CHRISTMAS!

Due in two days, here's the link!

I used the Concord & 9th "Hi There Bear" along with some distress ink cubes. A stitched die and my own sentiment with some Simon Says dies to finish it off .


Distress inks :
Evergreen Bough
Festive Berries
Black Soot


Diy's background: Just drag your inks across the paper in a way that makes you smile and Viola!
