Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone! It's Tracey here to share this mixed media card I've created featuring the gorgeous Nature's Spirit Collection.

The beautiful fall colors have lingered this year, but are nearly gone now. I wanted to keep them going just a little longer so the gorgeous fall colors in these papers from the Nature's Spirit collection were perfect. I've used one of the 6x6" sheets for the base and fussy cut the fabulous butterflies and lovely sentiment from the Feather Cluster sheet as well as the sweet flower tucked in behind the sentiment. I normally hand deliver my cards allowing me to use a lot of dimension, but this card is going into the mail so I simply added a couple darling ScrapBerry's charms to accent. I've also used ScrapBerry's Decorative Ribbons (lace) in the mixed media background.

Close-Ups
To create the mixed media background, I stenciled a design with molding paste, then used matte gel medium to adhere strips of lace with the ends distressed. I colored the lace and molding paste areas with coordinating color mist, then rubbed with metallic waxes to highlight the texture.

The metal charms are also rubbed with metallic waxes.

I just adore the way these fussy cut butterflies pop against the mixed media background!
