{2} Different Cards With Patter & A Sketch Layout

Today I wanted to share two very different cards with you. The first is a mixed media card with lots of paint, embossing paste, etc. The second is a simple quick card without any paint or mixed media. So, if you need to create something in a hurry, try the second card. Otherwise, if you want to dabble in some paint and fun, try the first card! Let's have a look.

Today
This card uses lots of paint and mixed media. I used the Blue Fern Garden Calling Cards paper for the sentiment. I also used the Symphony Corners and Mini Ring Things chipboard.

The Symphony Corner chipboard is painted with a layer of gesso then a pink mist. The Mini Ring Things chipboard I cut into individual circles and covered each piece in gesso. Then I placed a few rings on the card.

Just Because
This card is a more simple card. I used the gorgeous collage image from the Blue Fern Garden Calling Cards paper for the background. I then added some ribbon, flowers, and a flair button for the sentiment. I also added a piece of the Blue Fern Studios Bits of Honey chipboard. I left it raw because I liked that color against the other colors on the card.

Sweet Max
This is the 8 1/2 x 11 layout I created using the Blue Fern Studios April Sketch Challenge. You still have until midnight EST tomorrow to join in the fun!
Pin It
To color the Blue Fern Bit heart chipboard, I put down a layer of gesso followed by a blue mist. While it was still wet, I "stamped" a piece of bubble wrap on each piece to get this fun effect.
