I created a mixed card for this challenge using my favourite techniques : texture paste, gel medium, burlap, medical gauze for texture; watercolours, paints, gelatos ,mists to add colour; gesso and stamping to tie it all together.
The sketch and colours for my card came from this fabulous board from OfftheRails Scrapbooking. Its really beautiful isnt it..... Ive used these colours plus ofcourse white from gesso.
I couldn't stick exactly to the sketch, so I retained the main focal elements in the top like in the sketch but centered it.
One last reminder, there is still time to join us at the Mixed Media Card Challenge #2 - Summer ; hop over to check out what the other DT have created, Im sure you'll enjoy it.
Here are a few pics I took along the way making this card. There are soooooo many layers on this, I'm surprised the paper (Prima Princess) withstood everything I threw on it. LOL :)
The base was burlap with gauze on top of it, mists and embossing paste and texture paste through a stencil.
Some more layers of paints and gesso
Then accidently spilt some very bright pink paint which was almost like a neon pink... and it ruined the whole thing :( so on it went heaps of gesso and then very carefully restored the colour on the card by adding a little paint at a time.
