Hi friends! Today's Mixed Media Monday offering is in the form of cards.
I recently purchased this beautiful 6x8 collection from 49 and Market called Curators Botanical. I was completely smitten as I flipped through the different designs of these high quality, heavy cardstock double-sided patterned papers.
For each card, I did a bit of stenciling on the patterned paper, using a Cathe Holden Layered Vintage Floral Stencil from Spellbinders. I also stamped some images using Tim Holtz Field Notes Cling Stamps.
The Specimen Dies from Tim Holtz sold out so fast! I was lucky enough to find this one at Scrapbook.com, and I couldn't wait to use it. The flower is printed on acetate. I found quite a good selection on Amazon. I glued the flower to the specimen slide that I cut using papers found in my scrap box. I distressed the edges and added more stamped images from the Field Notes collection.
Both cards are the same in design style, but I chose to add a butterfly to this card.
I added strips of kraft washi tape to each of the cards to look like the slides were added many years ago. I added a bit of distress ink to the edges of the tape to add to the aged look.
I'm so happy with how these cards turned out.
