Layers Of Romantic Mixed Media Pastels + Sweet Valentine’s Chickadee

Video tutorial exploring romantic Mixed Media Layers + Sweet Valentine's Chickadee. Handmade card design by Debby Hughes.

Today, I want to share my newfound love of mixed media layers with you. This soft whites and pastels palette makes for an excellent backdrop for this sweet Layered Chickadee. This card would make a great Valentine’s, but equally is generic enough to be sent any time of year.

I’ve linked all supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at not cost to you.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to use all of these, but as it turns out, I did. So there’s the Layered Chickadee, Dotted Heart, and Privet Branch dies, the Polka Hearts stencil and the So Much Love stamp and die set. All these products are listed and linked below for your convenience.

  • Use the cream/white die-cut for the Chickadee body, attach the grey/brown wing to the bird with foam tape. 
  • Glue the black head and neck pieces in place with a grey/brown beak. 
  • Attach foam adhesive to the back of the Chickadee and use the sticky surface to attach a black eye die cut.
  • Stamp the large script ‘Love’ greeting from the So Much Love set on Ivory card with Versamark ink and heat emboss with Antique Gold embossing powder.

  • Using a piece of the watercolour card and the dip and dry method, create another card using Tattered Rose Distress Ink and run through with the Dotted Heart die to create a heart that tones better with the colour palette.
  • Take a watercolour card and adhere a torn piece of book paper. 
  • Apply gesso over the paper with an old paintbrush or spatula.
