52 CCT - Mixed Media

Hi, today's crafting is for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Challenge.

This week it is mixed media, sounds like fun.

I am quite new to mixed media but have purchased some acrylic paints and stencils to play with, so they might do as a starter.
I used Paperartsy Fresco paint, coloured the background then stamped over the holly leaves in green archival ink, using a stencil I added the lilac paint shapes and overstamping with white paint the script. I made tags to match and added diecut Christmas Stockings. Stamped the sentiment, Merry Chritmas edged this with distress inks and attached to my card which I mounted on a contrasting mount. This is a bright colour combo, my first background started out much darker, so I started again for the above card with a lighter colour pallette.

Thank you for visiting and reading about my card design.

  3. I like the nontraditional color scheme you've used here. You have an interesting mix of vintage looks (the stockings and sentiment) and a more modern flair (the lilac stenciling). Thanks for joining us at 52CCT.
