"Don't Forget to Fly" Mixed Media Card with Tracey

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey here with my final post as a designer for Scrap & Craft. Thank you Aneta, for the wonderful opportunity to create with such gorgeous products from your amazing shop! The store remains open, so come back often to pick up your favorite supplies. 

This sweet card features gorgeous Studio75 Berry Copse paper along with beautiful chipboard and flowers from the store. I just had to use the "don't forget to fly" sentiment with the fabulous SnipArt hot air balloon chippie making this a card that can be used for a variety of occasions.


Tips and Techniques
This lovely floral cluster includes a Magnolia Flower, Ivory Mulberry Rose, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the store along with a few from my stash. I dry brushed the flowers with white gesso, then applied matte gel medium and sprinkled lightly with white gold microbeads to add sparkle. 

I used Bambino Glue to adhere the Prills that I tucked in for color and texture.

The lovely Craft Molly Floral Corners Chipboard was snipped in half, then heat embossed in white, then again with sparkling holographic embossing powder. 

I used fabulous Studio75 The Berry Copse paper from the 6x6" pad for the background. To add texture and more sparkle, I stenciled a design with molding paste across most of the background and then while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled generously with super fine glitter.

***Tip***
Once the glittered molding paste is completely dry,
used canned air to blow off any excess glitter.

Ah, this is my favorite part of the card. I cut a piece of coordinating paper from the pack to fit the back of the balloon and heat embossed the chipboard with bronze embossing powder. The metal heart from my stash fit perfectly over the basket of the hot air balloon. It is rubbed with metallic paint and art waxes to give a grungy vintage feel. 

The background is stamped with a script stamp, then spattered with white ink.


I've been blessed to create alongside some amazingly talented designers
here at Scrap & Craft and wish each of you all the best.
