It's time for the Release Rewind! If you haven't already taken a look at the new products released this month, be sure to check them out HERE.
The first card that I have to share with you today is another mixed media project. At first, I was seriously scared of the whole mixed media thing, but I am really starting to enjoy it!
I started out with a sheet of Smooth White card stock and I added a sheet of Tim Holtz Tissue paper. After a quick layer of Gesso, I added some color with my new Gelatos. I LOVE those little crayons!
I stamped the script stamp from the Art Expression stamp set on one corner of the card stock. The butterfly was die cut from a piece of Grape Jelly card stock and then stamped with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.
The sentiment from the Chalkboard Greetings stamp set was stamped in the other corner.
On the inside of the card I stamped a sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set.
My second card features the new Sun-Ray Die-namics. This is such a fun die to work with. I started with a piece of Smooth White card stock. I mixed some MIX-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist with some Lemon Drop Ink Refill and I spritzed the card stock. Once it was dry, I used the Sun-Ray Die-namics.
My final project for today is a tag book that features the new MIX-ables Mist and our Ink Refills. We have two colors of MIX-ables Mist, Sheer Shimmer Mist and Steel Shimmer Mist. You can use these mists on their own or you can combine them with our ink refills.
I created a tag for each of the colors that we currently have ink pads and refills for. The top of each tag is the ink refill mixed with the Sheer Shimmer Mist. The bottom of each tag is the ink refill mixed with the Steel Shimmer Mist.
I really love that you get a darker, deeper color with the Steel Shimmer Mist.
I mixed around 6 drops of ink refill with about 30 or so drops of the mist.
Instead of using a mister to color the card stock, I mixed the ink refill and the mist in a paint palette and I brushed the color onto the tag.
I used Smooth White card stock for the tags and I printed the names on X-Press It card stock.
The tags were quite wet and messy when I finished painting. As I like things to be nice and neat, I added a clean white tag to the back of each tag.
Here's one last look at all the tags together.
