Mixed Media Wall Hanging for Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello friends!  I’m back again to share a mixed media wall plaque that I’ve made with several Sparkle N Sprinkle products:

It’s been a while since I’ve made any mixed media projects, so it was nice to be able to “get messy” and use some media products that I don’t pull out often enough!  (Please check the end of this post and/or for a full detailed tutorial on how I’ve made this project, please visit me over on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog post here! – Thank you for your kind support!)

So I started out the image panel thinking I was going to make a card with it, but then it felt like it was too large, so I decided I was going to make a Vintage style wall plaque with it instead!  I had this plaque hanging around my room for about a year knowing that at some point I wanted to do something with it, so this felt like the opportunity I needed to get a project going.

I’ve used a January release stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Vase of Flowers stamp set.  I colored it with Copic markers except for the pink flowers and buterflies.  I covered the flowers with the Pink Fizz glitter and the butterflies with the Canary flocking.  I cut out the image panel with the Tonic Loopy Lace Oval Die and added it to a piece of cardstock that was covered with the Super Adhesive Sheets.  I then covered the entire panel with the same Pink Fizz glitter and burnished into the background.

Shown at a different angle, you can see allof the dimension and detail of the design.

I have also covered the flowers using some SNS Brushable Glue and brushing it over top in certain areas over the flowers and then I sprinkled some Diamond Dust glitter over top of them.

Isn’t this guy adorable?!  I have used one of our sponsor’s image for my card today from Bugaboo.  This is the Critter Balloons – elephant digital stamp.  I have actually cut him out twice and colored him in, but I cut just his head and the balloon to pop them up with some foam tape for a little dimension.

I’ve made a Center Step Card for my design today.  I kept the dimensions at an A2 standard size when it lays flat so that it will still fit inside an A2 envelope for mailing.

I’ve used some fun birthday style papers from my old stash and then I’ve used a sentiment from My Favorite Things More Essential Sentiments and white heat embossed it over a piece of black cardstock that I cut out with the Die-namics Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips.  Lastly I added some silver ribbon above that.

Here’s a bit of a close-up to see the dimension over the image.  I’ve also taken a glue pen over the balloon image and added some clear sparkly glitter over it.

Hope that you’ve enjoyed my card today and please be sure to stop in over at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the design team!  We look forward to seeing what you come up with this month!
