Hello crafty friends! It is Design Team member Natasha here and I am excited to be up on the Lindy’s Gang blog today! Today I am going to share a fun way to use your Enchanted Forest Magicals, sprays, and embossing folders to create quick and beautiful cards!
So let’s get started!
I started with a piece of Canson Mixed Media paper. I taped my paper down onto a hard board to prevent warping. Next I started to work with the Enchanted Forest Magicals set. I placed some water on top of my mixed media paper and then carefully added the following colors: Gnome Berry Bordeau, Sparkling Sunset, and Dragonfly Denim. I worked with one color at a time, adding a bit of magical powders and letting the powders do their work with the water. I allowed this layer to dry. Once the panel was dry, I added a bit of Glitz Magicals in the color Gleaming Gold. The shine on this color is truly amazing!
Once this layer was complete, I wanted to add a bit more texture and dimension to my panel. I chose an embossing folder from my stash and carefully ran the panel through my die cutting machine with the folder. I love the added dimension the dry embossing gives to the Magicals. To create a bit more texture and dimension I added some Starburst Sprays, using colors from the Enchanted Forest collection. I carefully added Sparkling Sunset, Dragonfly Denim, and Gnome Berry Bordeau. I also added Moon Shadow Mist to the panel in the color Silhouette Silver.
I sprayed colors in various sections to add more dimension and interest. Once the panel was dry I went over the top of some areas of the raised sections on the dry embossed background with a distress crayon. I applied the crayon and then rubbed it onto sections with my fingers. Then I added some splatters using Sidewalk Chalk/Flat Fabio Spray. Next I trimmed the panel slightly smaller than an A2 card base and then adhered this to my card panel using liquid adhesive.
Next I die cut a flower from mixed media paper. I die cut the floral image 3 times and then adhered this together using liquid glue. I then sprayed Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz onto my floral die cut. Once it was dry, I adhered the flower to my card front using both liquid glue and foam tape. To complete my card, I stamped 3 sentiments onto white card stock, trimmed them down into sentiment strips and adhered this to my card front using foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I love using Magicals and Shimmer Sprays, they create so much color and sparkle and the results are truly beautiful! I hope today’s card inspires you to try your Lindy’s Gang products with your embossing folders! I am sharing links to all the Lindy’s Gang supplies I used below!
