I still had product out in my studio from that I hadn't cleaned up from the Mixed Media cards I created last week, so I set out to see what else I could create.
The background panel is created using the Gelli Arts Plate, and DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Coastal Waters, Flamingo, Cotton Ball and Orange Sherbet and a stencil from Just a Trace. I actually pulled a few prints on Mixed Media paper and one of Pattern Paper before deciding on which piece to use for the background.
Here's some photos of my creative process
To finish the card, I stamped the children from the Think and Wonder plate in Black Archival Ink on Vanilla card stock, cut them from their background, sponged the edges in Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress ink and colored them using STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Pencils and Watercolor Markers. Then adhered them in place using Decou-Page. To add a little more dimension, I applied DecoArt Modeling Paste through a stencil.
