Fireworks - Mixed Media

Hello Everyone,

Unruly PaperArts has wonderful Reader's Art Quest (RAQ) this month- 'Fireworks'
Here is the inspiration photo

You can join us with any paper crafting or Mixed media project inspired by colors or theme.

I've small tutorial for you, how I made this Mixed Media Wall Hanging.

I stamped Fireworks image with Impression Obsession rubber stamp and Distress paints on to the white cardstock. Heat set it completly.

Applied Salty ocean distress ink all over the surface with ink blending tool. Distress paints resist inks when dried, so we can see fireworks clearly, although I applied dark blue ink over it.

On another white paper I stamped hero arts Newspaper skyline stamp with Jet black Archival ink. Fussy cut individual buildings, applied black soot distress ink at the edges, to give them more depth.

I attached the buildings with foam adhesive. Applied Snow Tex at the bottom to show December snow.
I also added some Prima embellishments and my mixed media piece is ready 

Hop over to UPA to see other wonderful creations by other DTs.

Thanks so much for your visit, comments and love.
