Here's what I used to create this card:

Here's what I did to create this card:

  1. Create a card base from aqua cardstock
  2. Trim a panel of natural white 4"x 5.25"
  3. Spritz with Copic® reinker mixed with alcohol
  4. Spritz with Peacock Feathers reinker mixed with water
  5. Drip on acrylic ink
  6. Spritz with coffee
  7. Stamp border along bottom
  8. Paste feather and set aside to drive
  9. Stamp sentiment and trim closely as shown
  10. Distress edges of sentiment with paper distresser, ink edges with distress ink and spritz with inks and coffee like the background panel
  11. Trim a piece of seam binding and spritz with inks, set aside to dry
  12. Once paste has dried, go over feather with Brushed Corduroy ink and Peacock Feathers ink
  13. Using markers, add lines to feather
  14. Create bow with ribbon and twine
  15. Using scrap of crochet ribbon, fold into a "v" and adhere to panel
  16. Adhere bow to panel over the crochet ribbon scrap and trim twine ends
  17. Adhere sentiment to card
  18. Add any additional drips as needed

I love doing these mixed media style cards!  It's really a lot of fun to spritz and paste and drip and then add a touch of girlie-ness to it!  For more frilly fun, visit the rest of the "A" team:
