Maker Forte - Fall Mixed Media Card (Video Tutorial)

Hello Everyone, 

I'm at Maker Forte Blog with this One layered Mixed Media Card. Before I start.. I want to ask you :) ... Do you get intimidated by Mixed Media Cards?? If your answer is Yes...then this post will help you get started easily. In today's video tutorial, I will be showing you how to make this Clean & Simple One Layered Fall Mixed Media card by adding lots of depth & texture using Distress ink & stenciling.

To make this card, I've used Maker Forte Stencil - Blustery Day designed by Jess Francisco , and for stamping I've used 'Bear with me' and 'Love' Stamp set designed by Jess Francisco & Alex Syberia respectively. I have put a video together to show you a step by step process here at my YouTube channel..

I started with creating the background, for that I've used 'Spiced Marmalade', 'Wild Honey' 'Mowed Lawn' 'Picked Raspberry', 'Crushed Olive', 'Peeled Paint' and 'Vintage Photo' Distress Inks. s. I've used Make Forte - Mister Perfect Spray Bottle to activate the Distress Ink. Once done with ink smooshing I splattered this panel using same Distress Ink colors.

After that, I randomly stenciled this panel using Maker Forte Stencil - Blustery Day with same Distress Ink colors. Once satisfied, I stamped it randomly with a fall leaf from 'Bear with me' stamp set designed by Jess Francisco using same Distress Inks.

Then I stenciled it with Texture paste using Blustery Day stencil and let this panel air dry. Once it dried, I stamped the sentiment from Maker Forte - Love Stamp set designed by Alex Syberia using Eclipse Black -Color Hive Ink Pad .

I mounted this panel on Maker Forte - English Mustard Card stock using glue. Finally I embellished it with Maker Forte Aura -Crown Jewel Gems to complete this card. I hope you feel inspired to get creative today!. Thank you so much for stopping by!
