Vintage Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone! It's Tracey back to share a vintage mixed media card with you today. I have a dear scrapbooking friend who turns 76 this week. She adores birds, so I pulled out the gorgeous ScrapBerry's Primavera Collection with such lovely bird images to create this special card for her.

Tips and Techniques
 I created a sweet cluster with gorgeous Scrapberry's Cherry Blossoms, Lily, Freedom Flair Button, and Curls for Wedding Swirl. To soften the flowers, I dry brushed them with white gesso. 

 On the other side I tucked in a Wind of Travel Clock and another Cherry Blossom.

 The Primavera Card pages have so many gorgeous images. I cut out the birds and feather cards along with the blossoms and butterfly to layer as the focal point of the card.

You can see just the head of the sweet French Journey Polymer bird. I brushed it with white gesso, then dabbed with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I added just a bit of blue with ScrapBerry's Blue Stains Ink. I rubbed some of the ink off for a grungy vintage look.

 I tied a triple loop bow with Light Brown Shabby Ribbon - a perfect pairing with the vintage style of this card. Feathers are cut from the cards paper and arranged at the center of the bow.

The Butterflies Wings Clear Stamp is great for backgrounds and the edges of the card are stamped with this beautiful image. After stamping, I lightly dry brushed the background with white gesso. I also spattered rose color mist and white ink across the card.

For added dimension I scattered silver microbeads and pink prills around the clusters and bow.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's supplies
