Mixed Media Cards

Hi everyone, I've created some mixed media cards using backgrounds created with awesome colors from Lindy's Magicals Pigment Powders.

I mixed several different colors from the Drop Dead Diva collection to create the backgrounds.   I sprinkled Prima Donna Purple, Drop Dead Gorgeous Green and Sassy Sapphire on water color paper then, using a mini mister, I spritzed them with water.  Turning the paper in all directions allowed the colors to mix creating amazing backgrounds.

While waiting for the papers to dry, I spritzed Poppin Pink Flat Spray in a plastic bag, placed white ribbon inside and massaged the color into the ribbon.

For my first card, I cut the background paper to fit blue cardstock, added a strip of corrugated cardstock then wrapped it with twine before adding the panel to the card.

Using assorted embellishment, I completed the card, then added a sentiment that was stamped on a scrap of the background paper.

For my second card, I embossed the background panel with an embossing folder, then lightly inked it before adding it to a dark purple panel.  Using the dyed ribbon, I wrapped it around the panel and added flowers to the corner before adding the panel to the card.  A sentiment was added over the ribbon.

While I used the same background paper, I created 2 totally different cards.  Aren't they lovely?

Thanks for stopping by.
