Mixed Media Leafy Thank You Card

I love mixed media, really I do.  But I often have issues with the whole messy, and "ugly till it's finished" aspect of mixed media.  I want it to be pretty (immediately) and clean!  One easy way to accomplish this, is to add a mixed media element to your card, that keeps the messy aspect contained.   

Add a artsy mixed media element, while still creating a clean and simple card by using die cuts.  Created using Fun Stampers Journey dies, inks, and paper.

For today's card, I started with a piece of Whip Cream card stock, that I die cut the Summer Branch die out of.  Then I sprayed that die cut with Lemon Grass, Cool Pool, and Blue Lagoon Splashes, and splattered it with Turbo Teal Silk.  I dried that piece, and made a card base from Whip Cream card stock.

I used the Cool Pool PanPastel on the card base, under the area that I planned on adhering my branch.  Then I adhered the branch onto the card base, and trimmed the excess "stem" that hung over the edge of the card.  I splattered some Sparkle Silk over the card front, and then added the die cut Thank You sentiment.
