Today we are making two very easy backgrounds to créate two very special mix media cards.
We will need:
First we must make a showy colourful background on watercolour paper, I used the Celosia Circulo Stencil for my work . Then we apply the stencil paste on the paper over the stencil using a spatula.
Once the stencil paste dried I applied red ink on one of the ends by adding wáter and sprinkling the diluted ink. After this dried I did the same on the other end using golden ink.
I then made a decorative composition with several elements. First I painted the cactus silhouette usint the green Markal paintstik. I also stuck on the paper some washi tape, black flowers, die-cut hearts, a Straw and the die-cut word “Love” (made using the Big Shot machine)..
Next thing I did was sticking the watercolour paper on the black cardboard.
To make the second card I followed the same steps. I used the Alphabet stencil and green Ink.
Using this tecnique, a part from making cards, we can make small paintings, decorate boxes, etc. … Let your imagination fly!
