Quick & Simple Cardmaking Techniques with Metallic Gesso

Hi Everyone!

Alexandra from The Hedgehog Hollow here with you today and I have some more tips for using mixed media products and stencils in your cardmaking.  I love the metallic gesso’s from TCW and I have been playing around with them for a while to get the perfect way to work with them on cards.  Before the metallic modeling pastes came out I had tried many times to use gesso through my stencils on cards for a metallic looks without much success; however, the other night I had a eureka moment (at 4am as usual!) and I had to come and try it, I was so pleased it worked! I also have two mounting ideas for quick and easy cards that pack a punch so lets take a look….

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, the stippling really helps give the cards texture rather than a painted look and I love the intensity of the mediums as well as hope the pink and silver words offset them perfectly.  Here is a full supply list to create your own versions… (affiliate links may be used at no cost to you).

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you feel inspired to try stencils on your cards too, don’t forget to tag us in your creations.  Check by the blog often too for more inspiration from me and the other wonderful design team.

Happy Stamping

Alexandra & The Prickle
