Guest Designer Marta Lapkowska is up today to share how she created her mixed media card background featuring our June Limited Edition Kit!

Here's Marta:

Hello everybody. I would love to share with you few tips on how I create my backgrounds. I am the mixed media person which means I love using all sort of mediums to my projects.

I start my background with sticking some paper into the card.


I distressed the edges of the paper background. I cut out some paper shapes for my card composition. I also distressed the edges of paper bits


I used some distressed ink for the paper edges.


I added modelling paste and stencil to the backround.


I covered few places with gelatos.


I added some splashes with sprays.


Dry all the mediums.
