{ Mixed Media Monday }

I created a card for Elle’s Studio Mixed Media Monday using their newest mini collection.

For this card I used: Patriotic Exclusive Stamp, Patriotic Journaling Tags, April Digital Cut File

Celebrate 4th by Daniela Dobson

I used a chevron stencil and modeling paste for the base of my card.

I added watercolor once the modeling paste was dry.

I cut the tags with my Silhouette and they are from the April digital kit. I stamped Celebrate with black ink.

  3. Hi Daniela,

    I really like your card! Beautiful!
    What kind of card stock do you use? If I don't use watercolor paper, my paper curls.

  4. Hi Carol, this is 65 lb Recollections cardstock from Michaels. I usually use the 110 lb from there that is much better for absorbing water. This one did curl a little, but it straightens out once I heat set it. Sometimes I prime the cardstock with Gesso and that helps, too.

  5. Hi Daniela,

    I will try your suggestion about heat setting it and see if that works on my regular card stock. If not I will try the gesso. Thanks for the GREAT tips!
