Hi everyone, it's Vicky here, and today I have a
card for you using mixed media techniques. Supplies for this card are
available online at Limor Webber Designs.
I've linked them up at the bottom of this post for your
convenience.

Isn't that stamped girl just adorable? Watch the
video to find out how easy it is to color with Gelatos® by Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. Apply your Gelatos®
on a stamping block, add some water and use a brush to pick up color
as if it was watercolor. Notice how "mint" and "bubble gum"
Gelatos® colors combination work great for
spring projects!

For the background, I used many of the Prima
patterned papers, I stacked them one on top of the other and used
distress techniques to give them an old look.

Rugged Edges

I used one of my favorite stamps from the new
release by Limor Webber and IndigoBlu called "Ruged Edges". To add
some dimension I have also used a stencil with "Whipped
Spackle".

To finish off my card I cut out some flowers from
a Prima patterned paper and adhered them on my card here and
there.
