Spotlight Sunday - Creative Girl Card with Dana

Hi Paper Wings fans! Dana here today sharing a card that I created with the Creative Girl Mixed Media Kit.

I added several of my favorite feminine touches to this romantic card including vintage text, ink splatters, gesso, glitter, and of course, stamping!

I selected a piece of neutral patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Creative Girl paper pad. My card base measures 5.5 x 4.25 inches, so I cut the patterned paper slightly smaller. I distressed the paper using scissors, inked the edges, and then mounted the patterned paper onto my card base.

Gesso can be used as an adhesive, so I applied gesso to two areas of my patterned paper and then pressed a vintage book page down on top. Once the gesso dried, I ripped the excess paper off.

I added colorful ink splatters with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Nantucket Pearls Sidekick Set.

I wanted to add some sparkle to my card base, so I sprinkled on some Vintage Glass Glitter. I also added a doily that I attached with a colorful brad.

I selected an image from the Clip Art Sheet. I wanted the photo to look more aged, so I inked up the Vintage Lace Clear Stamp with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I laid the image under my stamp block to use as a guide and used a baby wipe to remove the ink from the stamp that overlapped the woman in my image. The result is a nice lace border around my image.

I wanted to define the edges of the image so I applied a gesso border by dipping the edges into some gesso that I applied to a scrap piece of paper (No brush required!).

I added some color to the woman's cheeks with a Distress Marker. I stamped a sentiment onto a tag using the "Joy" stamp from the Snapshot Framer Clear Stamp Set and tucked it behind the photo to finish my card.
