Mixed media cards with Kripa Koushik

Hello friends,

This month, for my second project, I have 2 cards to share.
 They are non-standard cards approx. 6"x6" requested in this size in order to write a letter inside instead of a message. 

I started by cutting out some circles from Cocoa Vanilla pattern paper and coated them with white gesso. While that was drying, I coated all the 2crafty chipboard pieces with white gesso as well - a few gears from Steampunk Small & Medium, a small panel cut off from the Square Collage Panel and one piece from the Vintage Hot Air Balloon Set. I did NOT apply any gesso on the tile 2crafty chipboard piece 'You make me Happy'

To get an even coat of colour on the chipboard pieces, Ive directly applied stamp pads on the chipboard pieces.

 Here is the second card. The colour palette was directly based on the pattern paper.

Can you see how the Hot Air Balloon has a bright orange whereas the 'You make me happy' chipboard in the previous card looks darker and more vintage looking. That's because I didn't apply any gesso on the 'You make me happy' chipboard piece. Gesso makes colour look brighter on chipboard.

Thank you for visiting us today.
Wishing you all a very happy & creative week ahead.

2crafty chipboard used:
- Square Collage Panel
- Steampunk Gears Small
- Steampunk gears Medium
- Vintage Hot Air Balloons
- You make me Happy Title
