A mixed media card using Nirvana by Nadia!

Hi everyone!

It's Nadia here with you today sharing a mixed media card I created with the Nirvana collection. 

To start with, I used a Strathmore Mixed Media card, which is heavy in texture so it can withhold the mediums I would place on it. 

I then applied gesso and tissue paper on the front cover, before adding some Tim Holtz stamps with Archival ink. 

I then used some Crafter's Workshop stencils and gesso to create some more texture, before adding some mists for that gorgeous colour. 

For added detail, I used some black ink to create the splatter effect. 

Once the background was done, I cut out some images from the "Documented" and "Typograph" paper from the Nirvana collection which where JUST perfect for an awesome contrast between the black on the cut outs and the bight colours on the background.

These are the 2 papers I used ..

 I then added some flowers and other embellishments to finish them off.
