In this World by Stampin’ Up!

It took me an age to finish this card! I know! It looks so simple doesn’t it? It’s another of my tentative attempts at mixed media.

I created the card front by covering panel of Whisper White with Gesso so I could watercolour on top of it.  I then stamped the door from In this World by Stampin’ Up! in Basic Black Archival ink. Then I partially  painted over it with some more gesso and stamped the butterfly from the same set. I added the flower from Touches of Texture, added some colour using Night of Navy and Melon Mambo ink refills and an aqua painter. After that I totally lost confidence and didn’t know how to finish it.

It was only when my friend came round the other week for coffee and I started bouncing some ideas off her, that it came together. So what do you think? Does it fit the Mixed Media bill? Does mixed media scare you as much as it does me? LoL!

I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out in the end. Thanks Jackie!

I will keep experimenting with Mixed Media. I’m thinking of doing an art journal! Talk about running before I can walk! Lol!
