Today’s sweet little project is a mixed media angel card – recently on a discussion thread on (I think?) Facebook, someone said they wanted to see me try a mixed media card. While mine doesn’t have the “grunge” look that some expect when hearing the term “mixed media,” I do have several techniques involved in this Flower Girl, card!

I’m pretty sure I’m the last to find out, but a damp blending brush does an amazing job of blending the ink – I just cleaned it off on a baby wipe, not soaking it in actual water, but wow did it work! And these brushes from Trinity are pretty awesome – and they come with caps (that black thing in the picture) so I don’t end up making messes by accident!
Copics do work on Letterpress! I wouldn’t do full scenes necessarily, but they worked really great for a project like this one.
