Hello everyone I hope you’re all well and looking forward to a long weekend.
I am here to share some ubber sweet cards over the next few days of the new release from the amazbaules Nikky Hall.
Ula is sweet girl and comes in 9 different designs so there is something for everyone. She also comes with some free sentiments too! You can buy them as a set or individually all links at bottom of post.
So for this collection Nikky asked us if we liked using mixed media in our card making, well I love doing mixed media don’t do it enough but then I guess it all depends what you class as mixed media doesn’t it lol
Anyway for my first card I went a little dark and gothic it’s been such a long time since I did a bit of Goth!
The papers I used are from the Octavia collection as there are no papers with this new collection just images, I distressed the edges and inked I then cut the one corner off some of the papers and added some lovely lace, and added some cheese cloth behind.
The image (called be yourself) has been coloured with polychromo pencils. And I printed the words off (not part of the images) at the same time then inked. I also added some diluted paint splatters to the papers.
I made the embellishments taking some metal items from my embellishment tin and I went over them with black stencil paste then added some distress spray paint. The flowers were from some old jewellery Amy was throwing away so I saved from the bin and up cycled them again giving them the same treatment as the butterfly and corner piece. I then got a chipboard heart that was part of a hanger and coloured that along with the heart with the word you inside (it was this that gave me the idea for the card TBH) I added a large floppy bow to the large chipboard heart with a pearl brad for the centre and there you have it.
So I hope you like my first card for this launch you will have to wait until Monday for my next creation but head over to our FB page and you see more creations by wonderful teamies and there are some crackers I can tell you!!!!!!!
