May Your Home be Filled!

Good morning!  Sherry here with you today and I’ve got a simple layered card to share.  I’ve been having some fun recently working on single layered cards with some stenciling.  For some reason this process has taken me back a few years when we all stamped our backgrounds and used different tools to create with.  Today’s mixed media reminds me of those days and I’ve really gotten lost in the creative process.

I used 140 lb. watercolor paper for the entire card, including the base.  I love the thickness of the watercolor paper for my card base, so that it doesn’t feel so flimsy.  The paper for the card base was scored in the middle and folded before die cutting with Spellbinders Matting Basics.  I used the largest die (#7) of Matting Basics B for the card base and Matting Basics A for the front panel.

Using painters tape, Die Template #4 of Classic Hearts was taped to the front panel.  Using a stencil brush, layers of Victorian Velvet and Seedless Preserves was brushed on the paper.

Splatters of acrylic paint were applied to the front panel with a watercolor brush.  While some of the splatters were still wet, canned air was used to spread the splatters out.   A Pigma Micron pen was used to draw the squiggles around the edges of the card and heart.  Splatters of gold were added with a gold paint pen.  The sentiment, May Your Home be Filled, was stamped in archival black. 

Thanks for joining me today and I have you have a fabulous day!
