The Great Outdoors... by Josefine

The rules for this challenge: if it has anything to do with outside and it’s your creation, post it. If you incorporate any Emerald Creek product you get a bonus vote!


Hi everyone and welcome to this month's theme "The Great Outdoors". I was in the mood to make some cards. I haven't created mixed media style cards in a while and felt an urge to do so now. One of my favorite techniques for mixed media cards is to use stencils for texture, so I decided to pick some silhouette stencils and combine them with the Emerald Creek embossing powder.

I created four cards all together with two of each highlighting the same background technique. For the first two cards, I used my brayer to add paint to the paper.

For the 3rd and 4th card I went with my Gel Press.

All of the animals have been stenciled using Versamark ink. For some I used the embossing powder the way it is, for others, I mixed them together, creating my own "blend". You can see the details in my video.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget to join the challenge with your own outdoor themed project.
