I find tags are a great way to play around with mixed media and I really like the look of them on a card.
A few weeks ago, my friend Christine came over and we made some mixed media backgrounds together. This is the last piece of one of those backgrounds. It consisted of blue and green acrylic paints swiped on mixed media cs, then toned down with gesso, torn pieces of text paper layered over it, then some stencilling and embossing paste (in this case a harlequin stencil and clear paste so it doesn't show up much) on top.
I die cut the sentiment out of a scrap of shimmery green cs. The dove is die cut twice and layered together for extra dimension, then rubbed with versamark and heat embossed once with Frantage Shabby Blue ep, then again with Frantage Chunky White.
The background is sprinkled with both Frantage Shabby Blue and Shabby Green and heated from underneath to add a bit of interest to it.
It's also for my June quota at SCS's Christmas Card Challenge.
