Mixed media card for The Crafter's Workshop...a tutorial



Mixed media card for The Crafter's Workshop

Hello friends! I love using cardboard for texture and dimension. Here's a simple way to create a mixed media card using good old packaging cardboard...
Cut your cardboard to size. Then tear off the top layer to expose the corrugated part of the cardboard.

Apply a layer of gesso. Then apply a layer of Liquitex ceramic stucco with The Crafter's Workshop stencil.


Then apply some Faber Castell gelatos.

Blend with water and a paintbrush. It got too pink so I added some green.

When that dried, I embellished my cardboard piece.


Then adhered the cardboard to a card base.

So beautiful, Yvonne! I LOVE the texture of the cardboard, and love ideas for using recycled materials like this. That ceramic stucco paste is really cool. And such a pretty way to use the gelatos. LOVE the clock face layered on the doily, and all your pretty embellishing, too.
