Hello, friends! This is Virginia here. Mixed Media is all the rage, but do you know that you can create CAS (Clean and Simple) cards with these versatile supplies? I love that Altenew offers a wide range of Stencils, Ink Sprays, Washi Tapes, Watercolor Sets/Markers, and Embossing Paste. Pairing these with your favorite stamps and dies will stretch your supplies and creativity. Today’s CAS card will show you how to create with Mixed Media. I hope this inspires you to get creative and play!
Today, let’s examine the 3 key elements in this CAS card: Geometric, Floral, and Background. You can apply these 3 key elements as a formula in all of your designs.
Mixed Media Element 1: Geometric
First, I started out with ink spraying the Watercolor Paper and letting it dry. The Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays I used are Sunkissed, Warm Sunshine, and Orange Cream. After running your Gem Frame Die Set through your Mini Blossom (with Metal Shim), you will get this lovely die-cut piece. I kept the middle piece intact with a dab of glue.
Finally, with the Large Ink-Blending Tool, I inked up the bottom of the card front in Milk Chocolate Crisp Dye Ink. I took out the Milky Way Stencil and applied Embossing Paste over it. Once dried, I assembled all the die-cut and stamped pieces.
