Tropics Collection Shabby Mixed Media Card by Tracey

Hi ScrapBerry's Fans!! It's Tracey here to share a special project with you. My sweet niece is turning 16, and I created this mixed media card to celebrate her special day. I just adore the gorgeous colors and designs in ScrapBerry's Tropics Collection used for this card.


Tips and Techniques
I've used a combination of ScrapBerry's fabulous paper, fabric, and resin flowers and leaves to create this sweet focal point. A little dry brushing with white gesso softened them perfectly for the vintage feel I wanted to create.

A triple-loop bow is tied with Peach Shabby Ribbon dry brushed with white gesso to add to the shabby appearance. A polymer feather is tucked in from the Colorful Dreams set. I brushed it with gesso before coloring with touches of ink. A little background stamping is created in diagonal corners with the Fairy Tail Stamp. The pearl flourish is from the Happy Holidays 1 Swirl Set.

The Tropics Card paper is filled with lovely sentiments including this Celebration piece which I distressed along the edges and dry brushed with white gesso.

I layered strips of Wind of Travel, Writings Washi Tape on the background paper before adding stenciling and stamping.

One final view.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's products
and create a card or gift for someone special in your life.
