Aged Greenhouse - Elegant Mixed Media Effects


Hello WOW! Embossing Powder Friends, and welcome back to another Embossing Elegance post. Today I am excited to share a fun mixed media card that's still got an elegant embossed touch.

After die cutting and adding a little blended ink, I dabbed my WOW! Embossing ink pad around the greenhouse before adding Seth Apter Dirti Verdi embossing powder. Then I used a dry watercolor brush to gently remove excess powder here and there before heat embossing. 

I repeated the previous process but this time used Crusty Copper embossing powder before dry brushing the excess and heating.

I used blending brushes and my finger to ink the wooden greenhouse door. Once again, I dabbed embossing ink around the door, added Mud Pie embossing powder, dry brushed to remove excess, and heat embossed. Can you see all of the "aged" texture on the door? I love this effect!

After die cutting and inking the foliage, I set that aside to ink blend the layered woven stencil set. I did emboss the final step of the stencils over the blended ink, but then realized that unfortunately this WOW! embossing powder is no longer available. 

I adhered the flowers on the greenery, taped the background panel to a card base, glued everything together on the card, and finally stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Dirti Verdi and Crusty Cropper embossing powders.

What do you think? I love this mixed media effect and think it works so well with many products and types of crafting. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Love and crafty hugs!
