Distress Ink Festiveness

Just time to squeeze in the card I made for my gardening clients this year.

I really enjoyed making these. I've been struck with the mixed media bug and am now experimenting with lots of new mediums, paste, gels, blah, blah, blah....I love it!

So for these cards I set up a kinda conveyor belt of stages as I had lots to make. I used a stitched square die first to create my card centrepieces and smooshed 3 different colours of distress inks and set them aside to dry.

I applied Liquitex Super Heavy Gel medium through a circle stencil and added a blue glitter before it dried. I've said it before (yawn) but I love this gel, it's great for adding texture and dimension.

A few sequins next, strategically me, sequin placement in just the right spot is a skill worthy of a university degree

To finish I added foam tape to the back for a little bit more dimension to the card.
So, just 1 more sleep until the big day.
I hope Santa spoils you all rotten, but more importantly, don't forget to squeeeeeze the ones you love and tell 'em so.
Have fun!!
