ColourArte Mixed Media Dragonfly Card


 Hi, it's Gini back to share with you easy ways to incorporate ColourArte products into your everyday creations. Working on cards or other small scale projects is a great way to experiment with mixed media.  

  1. Cut a piece of chipboard for the card front. Paint with gesso. Mist with Radiant Rain. Novstep1
  2. Die cut and emboss the dragonfly from cardboard. Paint the raised areas with the silks, then mist with Radiant Rain to finish the coloring.Novstep2
  3. Stamp the rain droplets on the background. Mix a small amount of Primary Elements with Crystal Lacquer. Use a toothpick or the end of a paintbrush to drip the droplets of lacquer over the stamps to form a dimensional rain drop. Novstep3
  4. Assemble the card adding flowers, string and die cut sentiment.
  5. Glue prills around the flower cluster, but while the glue is still wet, tap a little primary elements over the prills to add shimmer.
  6. Mix Golden Bamboo Primary Elements with water and use a spatter brush to flick onto the card.Novstep4
These were all easy ways to use different products from the ColourArte family. I really love that colors are true from one product to the next, so you can use tons of techniques, while still having the colors blend seamlessly. Until next time! NovDetail3

I just saw this on Pinterest! This card is beautiful!!! Love how you added a little bit of laquer to Hanging Droplet Set. Your embellishments around the dragonfly are neat too.
