Easy Mixed media cards with a tutorial

Hello everyone!
Jaya here with you all today.

I have some easy mixed media cards to share with you all. 
Its pretty easy to execute these and so I thought its worth a share since mixed media can be so overwhelming at times!
Not too much embellishing and really fun to make. 
Have a look!











Step 1-

Take the desired stencil and spray through it on your cardstock in any two colours. Gently lift the stencil



Step 2-


 Now reverse the stencil and press on another cardstock for the negative impression of the stencil



Step 3-


You will end up with two patterns like so. 
Add the contrasting layer to the back of these cardstocks.


Step 4-


 On any one of the prepared background spray gently in the centre and spread the mist.


Step 5- 

Heat dry both cardstocks. Take the second stencil you want to use and apply modelling paste or Prima heavy white gesso through it. Prima gesso has heavy consistency and you may use it if careful enough.



Step 6-



 Heat dry again using the rangers heat it tool. Now use double sided  foam tape on the back side and adhere these to your card blanks,



Step 7-


 Embellish these cards as you desire . Also add the sentiment to it.


Step 8- 

Splatter with gesso and mist. 



You are done!
