Mixed Media Thank You Cards & TECHNIQUE VIDEO Featuring Prima Soft Oil Pastels with the February Scraps of Elegance Kit.

Welcome to my creative space!! I'm back to share a technique video with you featuring the Scraps of Elegance Watercolor Wishes February Mixed Media/Creativity Add On.

I'm so excited each month to see what fresh new mixed media product(s) Melinda has included in the kit and add ons. The February Creativity Add On includes Prima Soft Oil Pastels. I've not worked with oil pastels before, so enjoyed spending some time experimenting with several types of paper and inks to see what would work best to color the 49 and Market Gabi's Hibiscus flowers that I fussy cut for the focal flowers on a set of mixed media thank you cards.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

I share how I used Prima Soft Oil Pastels to color a stamped image in this

Here's the fabulous Watercolor Wishes February Scraps of Elegance Kit:

Additional add ons and kit details can be viewed HERE.

The Kaisercraft Oui Oiu paper is dry brushed with white gesso then edged with blue oil pastels. I used the Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom stencil to apply texture then rubbed with Aquamarine Viva Gold to highlight. Pastel Art Gems add such lovely dimension.

I wanted a soft backdrop for these sweet flowers, so layered cheesecloth, white feathers, and burlap threads over one of the Momenta Watercolor Doilies.

I adore texture so used a mix of Minni Pearl and Coral See Prills sprinkled with Prima Pearl Glass Glitter across the card. You  can see a little of the stenciled texture peeking out from under the cheese cloth too.
