House of Roses Best Wishes Card by Katie Lamb

Hello wonderful crafters 

Nearing the end of another week, and wow the nights in the UK are drawing in fast and its still dark getting up to go to work..... To brighten up the day Katie has made this beautiful best wishes card using Lemoncraft papers, these will be loaded onto the website in the next week or so, if you love Katie's card be sure to look out for them. 

All the products used on this project are linked at the end of the blog.

Hello Katie 

Mixed media doesn't just have to be restricted to altering things or creating on a canvas, any surface can be used, so give an extra special birthday or thank you card using your mixed media skills.

Cover a 6 x 6 card with House Of Roses paper and use the Clocks Stencil over the whole base.

Spritz with magenta mist ink and once set add a few layers of ephemera. 

Next add a postcard using 3d foam tape so that things can be tucked behind it later.

Spritz over more ink and then paint the bird flourish pink. 

Use heavy gel medium to add pink sand and crushed shells to the wooden shape.

Fussy cut some paper flowers out and tuck them behind the ephemera. 

Add a few paper flowers and coat with heavy gel medium. 

Add more pink sand to the flower petals.

Use a few glitter domed cabochons around the focal point.

Finish off card by using Alphabet beads to spell out the sentiment.

Thanks Katie :)
