Mixed Media Monday- Graduation Card

*****Join our May Challenge: ANYTHING GOES, HERE***** 

Hi guys, Katie here! This past weekend was my Sister's graduation, so I whipped up this fun, mixed media card to give her! I used the Celebrate stamp, which was perfect for a graduation card, don't you think? Scroll down to see a peek at my process.

I started by painting a bit of gesso onto my card base and stamping the Sunburst stamp into the gesso, this is a favorite technique of mine! Once the gesso was dry, I smeared gold gelato over it, sprayed that with a little water and rubbed it in. I also poured some Heidi Swapp gold color shine on top, which is why there are 2 shades of gold.

I wanted to stamp the large stars from the Hanging Stars stamp set in gold, but I didn't have any gold ink so I colored the stamp with a Gold PITT Pen and stamped it onto paper. After that, I spread glue over the stars and sprinkled glitter over top.

To add a bit more embellishment, I added on some Queen & Co bling in yet a 3rd shade of gold. My sister loves gold, so I'm sure she will like this card!
