Here is my card for today. I love mixed media but I have a very hard time making it since I am more of a neat, clean and precise crafter. With mixed media you never know what you are going to get, and while creating you experiment and get dirty, that drives me crazy. With that being said I am happy with the way this turned out.
First I brayered Primary Cyan Media Fluid Acrylic onto a full sheet of Mixed Media White Paper followed by Primary Yellow, then Titanium White to tone it down a bit.
Once the paint was dry, stamps from the Toxic Set were randomly stamped with Gama Green, Lightning Black and Pearlescent Orange Brilliance Ink.
Now the paper was cut into four 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 pieces, three to use later.
Next the butterfly stencil from the Butterfly Duet Set was placed on the panel and held in place with removable tape. Paint with DecoArt Media Gesso, let dry and outline with the pen that comes with the Butterfly Duet Set.
Layer stencils, secure with removable tape, then stipple with Rocket Red Brilliance. Remove stencils and shadow with black chalk using a flat brush.
