I love to use kraft cardstock in my projects. I went through my scrap box and found a white card I had previously gold embossed hearts on. This was the start of a fun mixed media project that used kraft paper for the base.
Time: 30-45 minutes
Find a scrap project to play with. Here I had a leftover scrap from embossing, so the hearts were already there. Drizzle Lilac Posies irRESISTible onto the card. Let sit a moment and wipe off with a damp towel.
Using direct-to-paper method, add pigment inks in colors of choice to the card front until covered. Add texture by stamping a pattern using Memento Rich Cocoa.
Attach newspaper scraps with On Point Glue.
Splatter with irRESISTible Wedding Dress and Tuxedo Black. Let dry.
Mix white paint with a small amount of water. Use a paintbrush to add random circles. Let dry.
Mix VersaMagic in Tea Leaves with water and uses a paintbrush to add scribbles on top of white circles.
With StazOn Jet Black add random stamping. Use scissors to cut circles and leaves from the mixed media piece.
Adhere circles and leaves to kraft card front using On Point Glue. Use Tuxedo Black Memento Marker to add doodles. Stamp ‘Thanks’ with StazOn ink.
