A card created with many different products ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Once I finished some projects over the weekend I had a little mixed media fluid on my craft mat on my desk and some cream pearl card that I recently found and here is what I whipped up …
A 150mm square card and great for posting
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:

Recently I found a pile of cream coloured pearl card squares and I was scratching my head for a moment as I don’t use that card colour. A light bulb went off and I think they are the left over’s from my cousins wedding stationery. They've been in my stash for five or six year’s lol! So rather than waste my mixed media fluid I grabbed a stencil and foam and added the fluid through the stencil until it was used up. Once dry I added a thin layer of Pebeo Matt Medium over the mixed media fluid because I was worried it might bleed out.
I also found some Kanban printed card that once again I can’t remember so I’m guessing that I am getting through a lot of old stash as well as working on new techniques and mixed media projects. Other than Christmas cards too so I am working very hard to use that up as well!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
