Pastel Sweeties Note Cards (set of 4)

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!
