The Mixed Media Card Challenge #25 – July – Sparkle

The Mixed Media Card Challenge

Hi! Thank you for spending some of your time to visit me. 🙂 I’m very happy to be here today with a reminder for The Mixed Media Card Challenge’s Challenge #25 – July – Sparkle.

Here’s my card: IMG_8151edited

First, I cut strips (lots) of Avery White Removable Multipurpose Labels.

Avery Self-Adhesive Removable Laser Id Labels, White, 8.5 x 11 inches, 25 per Pack (6465)

I used the strips to mask off the water color paper, making my own stencil of sorts, in a grid-square pattern.

I made sure that the label strips were securely adhered to the paper

and then water colored the squares.

After the paint dried a bit, I removed the label/tape.

  I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment then added Stickles in 3 colors, along with Smooch Spritz and some gems.

I trimmed the panel and adhered it to the green card base.

I started by masking off a circle and the bottom half of my panel. I did some ink blending and then removed the masked. I conitued by sketching in the mountains and reflection, using Copic markers and white and silver gel pens. I added Frosted Lace Stickles, white acrylic paint and water. I then added the sentiment and attached the panel to a dry embossed panel and a card base.
