Home - a Mixed media card :)

Yet another card in the series of "My inky hands" !!!

Thought to make an ombre in the sunset colors diagonally and hence started with wildhoney DI with very soft sponging and gradually increasing the intensity and ended with a darker tone of the shade with Rusty Hinge DI. Love the way the colors blended and flicked some water droplets straight from hand and left few seconds and wiped with tissue. This creates some interesting depth to the monochromatic background.

At one top corner, used stencil from TCW birds and feathers, sponged with momento tuxedo black and masked the area of the birds with a moon mask and again distressed the area with Rusty hinge to highlight the birds pair.

Then Kaisercraft Loire valley stamp set is used for the bushes, which is stamped again with Momento tuxedo black and the bird's home is stamped with Archival ink sepia.

The sentiment arrangement is different, and so again i masked and stamped according to the sentiment space and just to highlight the word "You". Then fussy cut the vellum sentiment label and bird's home, popped up with foam adhesives.

A teeny tiny wood veneer heart from Freckled fawn is sponged with red colorbox pigment and embossed multiple times with UTEE clear EP. Red embossed mdf heart is placed on the bird's home.

Used inks, stamps, stencils, paper pieced bird's  home, vellum, woodveneer heart, embossing powders and this sums up my mixed media card.

Hope you like it!
