Cardmaker's Garret) and Christine (It's a Card Day's Night). We meet up about once a month to play with new products and techniques. We always have a great time!
Yesterday, we tried out several new techniques and a few new products. We had some successes and some failures. Today I'm sharing one of the successes. :)
My dear friend Nancy S. sent me a lovely gift for Christmas that included the beautiful stencil used for today's card. Not only did she sent me the stencil, but Susan, Christine and I used Nancy's AMAZING TAG as our inspiration. Thanks Nancy!!
This is definitely a mixed media tag. Started by adding black gesso to a piece of regular card stock. Once dry, the stencil was placed over top and crackle paste was added. Once that was dry, I simply sponged on a few coloured on ink. Love how it turned out. Added a die-cut black butterfly to cover up a small mistake where the embossing paste was too thin. :)
Here's a close-up so you can see the crackle embossing paste --- so cool! :)
