Be adorable card by Maria Potapovich (mellpellmell)

Hi, scrapoholics!

It's Maria Potapovich (mellpellmell) here today to inspire you)))

As you know, I really love the mixed media style, but most often it is perceived as a jumble of colors, structural pastes and just like that ...
And it's very sad - style loses all its charm due to such errors of judgment ...

So lately I've been trying to do projects that can still be attributed to this style, but very simple and "neat".

This time I decided to make a simple and elegant card.

Despite its simplicity, it is quite impressive, I think:

I used two stamps to create this card - Western lily & Be adorable, but each of them, I used only partially))))

And if you noticed, I used THREE medias on such a small space - ink, embossing  powder and watercolor (to color picture) - aaaaaannnnddd sooooo... ahahaha)))), this card is made in the mixed media style!

My red embossing powder is to large with rough particles, but this stamp is so slim and trim that image still got quite distinct!

Hope you liked the simplicity and "modesty" of this card.

Have a creative day!

How did you get the lumpy embossing power to look this great. I love the texture. What brand did you use? Anything else you want to share. i love it all! TFS

My powder is made by "ScrapBerry's", but I think this texture is because of combination of the very detailed stamp and "thick" powder - they are working good together))
Thank you for your comment! <3
