Mixed Media Joy Card


I was playing recently with mixed media backgrounds for my cards and came up with this Christmas card for my stash. I started with a piece of watercolor paper, sprinkled on green and yellow Brushos and spritzed with water. I stamped some holiday text and created circles with several sizes of caps and found items with red 3D Stamp Paint from Viva. I also spattered red dots with a paint brush and diluted distress ink. I die cut an ornament (Memory Box) out of the piece and popped the ornament back in the negative space. I also die cut the ornament and the "joy" (Tim Holtz for Sizzix) out of shiny red paper and attached. The completed card front was attached to a red card base.

I am entering this card in the Mixed Media challenges at That Craft Place and Love to Create.
