Hi Blitsy Fans! Today I want to share with you how to take use mixed media to create fun cards full of color and texture to mail to your friends. These Strathmore Watercolor cards are perfect for this technique because of their heavy weight they can hold up to a lot of different mediums even texture paste such as the Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle that I used on my card today. Another thing that I love to do is incorporate my love of coloring with Copic Markers in my mixed media. Once my background is finished, I will take my stamped image that I colored with Copic markers and add it on top using foam adhesives like I did today or sometimes gel medium if I am working on a canvas. So, let's get started and let me show you how easy it is to make these fun mixed media cards.
