Have A Magical Birthday- a mixed media card


How are you all today?  I am guesting over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog this month and have a project to share!  The inspiration was really fun:

I love the pastel colors and all the texture!  Here is what I made:

I know, I could have went with the Easter theme but I didn't start with the stamps- I started with a triangle shaped Gelli Plate!  I loaded it up with some springtime colored Distress Paints and stamped a background.  I also played around with a pattern scraper.  It added some texture to the triangle impressions.  Once those were dry, I cut the paper down to card front size and added some texture paste with one of my Teresa Collins stencils.  I also gave it a good splattering of gold mist to add some shimmer.

Once it was done, I knew I had to pull out Waffle Flower's Magical Stamp Set! I stamped out the horse and added her wings.  I cut her out and then added some a soft shading of color along her main and tail.  I also added some sparkle to her wings with a Wink of Stella pen.  You can see some of the details here:

I stamped the first part of the sentiment onto vellum with Staz On ink.  Then I used the Magical Word Die to cut out the second part.  I cut it out of black cardstock and covered it in black Elizabeth Crafts glitter.  It gives off a lot of sparkle in real life!

I'm so glad I got to play along with the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge this month!  Pop over to check out what their design team created!  I hope you'll play along too-  Waffle Flower Crafts is sponsoring the prize this month so if you play along, there is a chance to win a gift certificate to the Waffle Flower Store!

Have a great day!
