“Peace and Dream” Cards

Hello Crafty Friends,

I wish you a beautiful and happy new year 2021. 

Today, I leave my Art Journal to present you two mixed media cards. These may be very suitable for sending your New Year’s greetings. I used a lot of TCW stencils to make them. For the background I have chosen TCW585 Inspired Words, TCW734 Constellations, TCW5004 Star Shower. and for the little houses TCW851 Dotted Rings, TCW853 Circle Tiles, TCW832 Script Words, TCW837 Texture Plate, TCW876 Screen View.


Mixed Media Cards

I start by making the backgrounds with some Color Spare and watercolor paper, I use TCW9051 Watercolor Paper Pack, TCW9055 ColorSparx Berry Punch and TCW9058 ColorSparx Alpine.I sprinkle all three colors on the watercolor paper and add a little spray water with my Spritz Bottle. You can tilt the card to give a sag effect.

Now I do my decor for the little houses. I use a strip of watercolor paper that I stain with several colors of Distress Oxide, then I use the TCW 851Dotted Rings, TCW853 Circle Tiles, TCW832 Script Words, TCW837 Texture Plate and TCW876 Screen View with a dark gray ink.

I cut out some squares and roofs to make the houses. I mix the colors to assemble the two parts.

No need for perfection, even if the houses are a bit wobbly, it gives charm and whimsical.

I make the skies with TCW734 Constellations, TCW5004 Star Shower and the titles with TCW585 Inspired Words all with TCW9026 Champagne Gold Modeling Paste. Then I adhere the houses and I finish decorating them with white and black markers.

Some more details.

I always put my cards under a big dictionaries to make them flatter before sticking them on their supports.

I finish by putting a little gray Distress ink on the edges of the card. Then I adhere it on a white bristol paper and another of color with some clear double sided adhesive.
