Today's mixed media card features the new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set Donna's Stylin' Sayings.
To start off, I cut a piece of watercolor paper to the size I wanted and began playing with my Nuance pigment powders (Hot Pink, Red, Bright Yellow). Once I was happy with that and it was dry, I added some Dreamweaver's white embossing paste that I had tinted pink using a bit more of the Red Nuance powder. While the embossing paste was still wet, I sprinkled a little Lavender Iris glitter here and there.
The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Embossable Clear Acetate and heat embossed using Buttercup Petal for the brush stroke and Outer Space for the word. After adhering, I began to sprinkle on some of the chunky embossing powders (Super Thick Silver, Super Thick White, and Super Thick Gold) in various areas.
Next I added a piece of chipboard from Want 2 Scrap (dress form from the Printers Trey Embellishment set). I used Super Thick Silver embossing powder to color the dress form base and Bronze Rose embossing powder for dress form.
I pulled out my Mon Ami Gabby pull ribbon thinking I would add a flower bow to the piece, but then I started playing around with it and thought it would make a cute skirt for the dress form. Instead of pulling the ribbon string completely, I let it gather a little to create the look of a skirt and then I tied it around the waist. To finish off the card, I distressed the edges with the edge of some scissors.
