Mixed Media Card Tutorial by Dina Kowal

Dina Kowal shares a beautiful Mixed Media tutorial today using paints, tissue and fabulous E2455 Ghost Espresso stamp from the Leigh Hannan line at Impression Obsession.


 

I had fun, anyway, making a new card to share! I was in a Halloween mood, so I went that direction - I had a piece of cardstock that I had scraped with orange and black acrylic paints, so I used that for my card base. I covered that piece with kraft tissue paper, adhering itwith watered down glue. When it was dry, I lightly rubbed dark brown paint over the piece with my finger to highlight the wrinkles in the tissue paper.


The focal image (Ghost Espresso) was stamped on Neenah cardstock, then brayered with acrylic paint. After the paint was dry, I added more color with Lyra Polychrome pencils , and some acrylic and India ink markers.

Ghost Espresso
Have a great day!

WOW! Love all the different textures and colors you used in this! Beautiful job!

Gorgeous card.

Love this card, I haven't seen this one yet! The background is so cool, looks like the windows in a spooky haunted mansion. And Dina's coloring is wonderful as always. Thanks for sharing.

Love the textured background and the brayering with paint over the stamped image is inspired !

this is a super technique, one to try with different colors and images. I also use Lyra Polychrome pencils. I love your results. I don't like Halloween , but sure do love your technique and mixed media....thanks for sharing.
