"Mediterranean Dream" Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer

Welcome to my creative space!

I have a sweet summer birthday card to share with you featuring Scrapberry's  bold and beautiful Mediterranean Dreams Collection. I just adored working with these fabulous summery colors.

Please don't forget!
ScrapBerry's is hosting a family themed challenge during May and June.
Be sure to stop by the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details
and inspiration by the talented design team HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. 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've used two sheets of the gorgeous Mediterranean Dreams 6x6 Paper Collection for the card base and border. The Borders page had a strip that included the lovely blue flowers that I fussy cut and tucked into the cluster. I added Prills to the flower centers for added texture. The dream sentiment is cut from the Cards 1 page and placed it on a chipboard element to pop it up and create a focal point.

Don't you simply adore texture? To color the molding paste, I rubbed Blue Stains Ink onto a craft mat and mixed it into the paste to create a perfectly colored paste to coordinate with the card colors. I used a stencil with a circular design to place this beautiful ScrapBerry's Floral Embroidery Crystal Sticker as well as a few clear domes from my stash. I've also scattered some Prills and chunky glitter for added texture.

The beautiful metal Rosebud Charm and Fairy Tale Resin Flower are painted with gesso, then colored with Blue Stains Ink.

To soften, I've dry brushed gesso lightly across the background as well as over the flowers and leaves.
