Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I’m on the Mixed Up Magazine blog today and I’m super excited to share a pretty set of note cards I created using the Tinted Images #1 – Girls Printables! OMG, these little sweeties are BEYOND adorable! I’ve been a card maker much longer than I’ve dabbled in mixed media, so making a set of cards with these images was the first thing that came to mind. Then, adding the stenciling with crackle paste, watercoloring and stamping just kind of happened for the backgrounds!
This is considered a teaser post… I’m sharing only one photo of my finished project here on my blog, so jump on over to Mixed Up Magazine to see more photos and details on how I created these pretty note cards! And while you’re there, why not click over to pick up a mag subscription?! It’s always filled with amazing project tutorials that I know you’ll enjoy and find very inspiring! UPDATE: Mixed Up Magazine has apparently undergone some changes and their blog has moved, meaning our tutorial posts have been deleted and these links may no longer be viable. I’ve added a few extra close-up pics of these cards below. ;)
So proud of how these cards turned out! So delicate and dainty… not at all what one would expect for mixed media! Here are angled and front shots of each…
