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.

I LOVE< LOVE< LOVE the Angel Card…!!!
Fabulous work Sandy!! What a great use of different mediums, I love this.
Thank you so much for showing and for the tips on the way. Have a great day.
This is just so so beautiful
Wow! Just lovely. Thanks for the damp brush tip. I got the brushes thinking they would be easier on my hands than daubers. I have not had the results I was expecting without applying loads of pressure. ( even harder on my hands). I’m trying this today. And double thanks for the colorless blender tip. I’m frequently chicken to freehand on my inked backgrounds ( well ever really -that’s why I buy stamps) Pencil marks can be hard to erase completely.
This card is so beautiful, and versatile as you said. Love the video that shows how all of your little details really enhance this card.
Sweet! I think this may be my favorite card of the Christmas season – so soft. That’s a great trick, by the way, of dampening the blending brush to activate the Distress Oxides! I’ll have to try that right away. Maybe we should challenge you more often!!! Yes, I know – you challenge yourself every day, but just sayin’.
