Hello friends! I'm continuing with my foray into playing with mixed media and have another card and video to share with y'all:


I stamped a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper with Simon Says Stamp's Thank You Text Background stamp using Fog ink. I then ink smooshed Simon's Celery, Lemonade and Seafoam inks to add color and texture. I added white gouache for splatter and once dry I applied crackle paste over the Geo Leaves stencil and then added MORE splatter using Zig's Silver Mica Liquid.


On a scrap of the watercolor paper I smooshed the Seafoam ink multiple times and once it was dry I die cut it with the Etched Butterfly wafer die. For the body of the butterfly I just painted over it with the Zig Silver Mica ink.


On the inside of the card I stamped the Thank You Text background stamp with Fog ink, then stamped a sentiment from the Friend Greetings stamp set with Seafoam ink. LOVE that sentiment ❤️.

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube.

Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home and provide for my children! I appreciate your support more than words can say! I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
