Today we are making two very easy backgrounds to créate two very special mix media cards.

We will need:

  •          Watercolour paper
  •          Thick cardboard
  •          Stencil paste
  •          Our favourite stencil from Todostencil.
  •          Ink, spray or any soluble paint
  •          Wooden silhouette, die-cut shapes and other decorative elements.
  •          Alphabet (to make the words)

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.
