Trying my hand at a skinny card...


Mixed-media-skinny-card

I haven't made a card in ages so I got to work last night on my first mixed media skinny card. Okay, I wanted to make a tag at first but added it to a kraft card base when it was done. *winks*


The cardboard was from packaging. I tore off portions of it to expose the corrugated portion..then a coat of gesso and play time with Liquitex white opaque flakes, The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Faber Castell gelatos. 


Playing along with The Mixed Media Card challenge.


This card was highlighted in The Mixed Media Card Challenge. :)
