Lately I've been contemplating mixed media and CAS styles of card-making. When I think of MM I think lots of texture and layers and paint and schtuff. CAS is opposite land. But what to do when you're a CAS girl at heart who happens to like getting messy--often unintentionally but that's beside the point. With this card I managed to combine both styles.
For the flowers I painted my Gelli plate with purple acrylic paint then lightly misted it with water before pulling a print. While that dried I used the faux mother of pearl technique for the greenery (Memento inks and Fantast/x frost white all-purpose ink--thanks for the Fantast/x, Loll!). The card front is impressed with a PTI impression plate and the PTI sentiment stamped in Versafine Onyx Black--see the picture below for an eyeful of that texture--swoon. The poppy is cut twice--once in the green panel and then again in the purple for the blossoms. I used Copics on the stamens.
