Hello Crafty friends it is Natasha here today sharing a fun masculine mixed media inspired card! I had so much fun creating today's card! I created this card for my husband for Father's Day and he loved it! I hope you enjoy it too! So let's get started!
First I started by working on my background. I started with a gelli print from my stash. I dry embossed the background using the Tim Holtz Typewriter embossing folder. I ran it through my die cutting machine and then starting to ink blend on top for added interest and texture. I used 2 colors of Distress Oxide Ink: Ground Espresso and Black Soot. I applied the ink around the card panel edges and to some of the raised letters. Once my ink blending was complete I used my distress tool to rough up the edges! I LOVE this tool and it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! Once the edges were distressed I applied a bit more ink using archival ink and a foam blending tool.
Once my panel was inked up and distressed, it was time to add embossing powder! I applied WOW embossing ink in various sections of the panel, including some of the raised letters and some edges of the panel. I used 2 colors of embossing powder: Etched Platinum and Weathered Gold. I continued adding powder until I had the look I was going for. In various sections I overlapped the colors, I love this look! I then applied a bit more oxide ink and archival ink over the embossed sections. I love the rustic vibe this provides!
Next I worked on my ephemera pieces. I applied ink to the edges of each piece helping to create that vintage vibe! I also added droplets of water to create more texture. Then on 1 of the pieces of ephemera I also added embossing powder. Once everything was complete I started to adhere my card together. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I completed my card with a sentiment "Limited Edition" and adhered this to the card front! I had a lot of fun creating this card for my hubby! Be sure to check out the WOW shop - there are so many gorgeous powders and they help create that vintage/rustic vibe!
Thank you for stopping by today - I will be back soon with more mixed media fun!
