Tuesday Tutorial - Mixed Media Layers - Kirsten Sheridan

Good morning, Kirsten here with a quick tutorial post for one of the cards I made for the Imagination Crafts' shows on January 22. I used...........

Mixed Media Ink Sprays - Magenta, Sunshine Yellow, Orange
Mixed Media Art stencils (back in stock soon)
Starlights Metallic Paints - Diamond, White Gold, Black
White Gesso

I began by spraying the MM inks randomly onto a piece of white cardstock, then set it aside to dry. Once dry I began adding the Starlights through the various stencils, the first layer was Diamond...........

The second layer was White Gold..................

The third layer was Black Starlights...............

The final layer was white gesso........

I applied Black Starlights through the Lotus stencil, added a sentiment from my stash
and used squares of white & black cardstock to matt & layer and mounted everything on to a 7x7" white card blank...............
