I'll Always Be There For You! -- A Mixed Media Background Card

Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring Rubbernecker Stamps beautiful new Layered Daisy Bouquet stamp set.  I've created a mixed media background to show off these pretty flowers.  Read on for the details!

First I created my background on a 4" x 5-¼" piece of watercolor cardstock.

  • Using a brayer, I swiped on two shades of yellow ink onto the watercolor cardstock.  I used Lemon and Autumn from the Color Fuse #1 set.
  • I let that dry, then added some random stamping with the French Script background stamp and Amaretto ink.
  • Next I sprayed the back of the Leaf Stencil with Pixie spray.
  • Then I spread some texture paste through the stencil.  I didn't cover the entire stencil, but just applied the paste here and there.
  • When the piece was dry, I used a glue pen to add glitter to the dry texture paste.

Next I stamped the outline stamp of several of the flowers and leaves from the Layered Daisy Bouquet set in black ink.  Then I used the included layering guide to stamp each layer with blue ink from Color Fuse #7.  For the leaves I used Color Fuse #10.  I fussy cut the images and arranged them on my card with glue and some with foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment from the Layered Daisy Bouquet set in black ink.  I popped it up with foam tape for more dimension.

This was super fun to make!  I like how the texture paste absorbs some of the yellow inks to create a subtly textured background!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
