Mixed Media Cards - 2crafty chipboard & Cocoa Vanilla

Mixed Media Cards

Hello friends,
This month, for my second project on the 2crafty chipboard blog, I have 2 cards to share.
 They are non-standard cards approx. 6"x6" requested in this size in order to write a letter inside instead of a message. Scroll down to see the moodboard at Mixed Media & Art which was the inspiration for these cards.

I started by cutting out some circles from Cocoa Vanilla pattern paper and coated them with white gesso. While that was drying, I coated all the 2crafty chipboard pieces with white gesso as well - a few gears from Steampunk Small & Medium, a small panel cut off from the Square Collage Panel and one piece from the Vintage Hot Air Balloon Set. I did NOT apply any gesso on the tile 2crafty chipboard piece 'You make me Happy'

To get an even coat of colour on the chipboard pieces, Ive directly applied stamp pads on the chipboard 
 Here is the second card. 
Can you see how the Hot Air Balloon has a bright orange whereas the 'You make me happy' chipboard in the previous card looks darker and more vintage looking. That's because I didn't apply any gesso on the 'You make me happy' chipboard piece. Gesso makes colour look brighter on chipboard.

Thank you for visiting us today.
Wishing you all a very happy & creative week ahead.

From the moodboard below, I used the sketch to make circle cards and the colours of blue & yellow from the tubs of paint.
