mixed media card

hello crafty friends!

today my post is all about stamping and using different media! 


i made this card for a very special friend, who recently proved that he is not afraid of falling!

and here is how i did it:

step 1: stamp the background of your card with the stamp of your choice {i used HC tattered background set} with blue ink. 

step 2: after the first layer is dry, stamp the image you would like to use with brown ink directly on the background and on a separate paper {to colour it and create a 3d effect on your card}.

step 3: i coloured my image with FABER-CASTELL design memory craft GELATOS - i'm really addicted to this cute little pastels.

step 4: while waiting for the coloured image to dry, begin altering your background with some more stamping. i used embossing powder on some of the gear wheels to add extra dimension to my card. 

step 5: cut out all the layers you need and begin assembling your card. for the yellowish label i used SPELLBINDERS golden labels four die. i coloured the edges with GELATOS and distressed them with brown ink.

i added pearls and die cut gears {SPELLBINDERS "sprightly sprockets" die} to finish off my design.

here are some close ups of the finished card:

i tucked the negative die cut under my sentiment and adhered the gear wheel on top of it.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!

hugs 'n smiles,
