Another Vintage Card

Hi everyone, Melissa here with another design team project for Mixed Media Warriors.
I wanted to do a card with layers of chipboard and die cuts.

To make this I took a half sheet of 12 x 12 paper from Mind's Eye, Lost and Found, "Buddies", and applied some gesso with a cosmetic sponge.  I glued on burlap ribbon, script printed ribbon, and small pieces of lace, all from Hobby Lobby. I topped them with silk ribbon from my LSS. A layer of circle frame chipboard has five different die cuts on top of it: O'Holy Night by Die'Sire, Cherry Blossom by Darice, Mirror Mirror by Spellbinders, and Medium Punch- Branch by Martha Stewart. Underneath the flower by 49 and Market is a Sizzix butterfly die cut colored with mica powder.

 The heart chipboard is from Tim Holtz. I prepped it with gesso, then painted with Finnabair's Art Alchemy Opal Magic in Aqua Rose Opal Magic,topped with a layer of Rock Candy Clear Crackle. The small piece of chipboard behind the heart is from Scrapiniec.

The metal ring fastener is from Tim Holtz, as are the tiny chipboard stars.  The pink paint is Rambling Rose by LSG. The blue green is a mix of Windsor and Newton watercolors: Prussian Blue and Sap Green. The gold is a thick acrylic by Firefly. I used a Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencil in Bark in different areas.  

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
