Get Well Soon Mixed Media Card and Winner

I have a mixed media card today that uses Distress inks, acrylic paint, embossing, markers, and of course, some lovely Want2Scrap products. I first heat embossed with white ink some Penny Black background stamps (text, music and woodgrain). I blended Distress inks in brown and blue, then squirted a little bit of water. With a pencil, I sketched a tree silhouette and colored that with Memento markers. Because the markers are water-soluble, I was able let the ink bleed a little with a water brush to make it look watercolored.

I then took 3 DecoArt acrylic paints in green blue, peach and white on a plastic palette. Using the eraser end of a pencil on the paints, I dabbed the dots on my tree as you see below. I started with the darkest green, then pink, white with a touch of peach, and finally white. I used the handle tip of a brush to get the smaller dots. I then embellished the dots with some Want2Scrap Le Creme pearls. I painted white on the outline of the Large Bird Flourish Silhouette – Card Sized (2 Pack) before adhering to the card. I then used 72 Count – Teardrop Bling – White Pearls for the wing. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers, which was mounted with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares.

  13. I saw your card at the Muse Challenge and had to come to see how it was made. I can't believe you did the heat embossing first, then the image. And the dots are wonderful. It is a fantastic card. TFS
