Hello There! - Paper Glaze Luxe and Liquid Splatters

mixed media Paper Glaze paper splatter

Hi there, it's Colleen here and I'm excited to share this mixed media card!! I got to play with the new Paper Glaze Luxe from the April release! For my card today, I'll be using Paper Glaze Luxe in Clementine Preserves and Tropical Cocktail, Oversized Tropical Leaf die, Liquid Watercolor Splatters in Yellow, Salutations sentiments stamp, and from a previous release Liquid Watercolors in Purple Lilac, Pierced Blanket cover die plate, A2 Rectangles for Card Layering dies, and Polka Dot Palooza Foiling card panel. 

First, I added a thin layer of the new Paper Glaze Luxe in both colors to 2 sheets of heavy weight cardstock. I used heavyweight cardstock because it holds the paper glaze well. When it was dried (maybe 1/2 hour later), I die cut the oversize tropical leaf using the Tropical Cocktail paste and the lattice design die cut using the Clementine Preserves paste. It came out SO beautiful! I set those aside and focused on the backdrop. 

Starting with a foiled design from Polka Dot Palooza, I ink blended over it in shades of teal. The foiling resists the ink, so you still see that lovely shine! Then I adhered the lattice die that was created using Paper Glaze in Clementine Preserves over the background and finished with splatters using the liquid watercolor splatters. 

Next, I splattered the oversized leaf that I had die cut earlier over the Paper Glaze in Tropical Cocktail and adhered it over the lattice background at an angle so that the background peeked out from behind the leaf! At the last minute, I decided to add gold paste to the edges of the leaf to help it pop a bit more. Then I finished with a sentiment from the Salutations stamp set. 

In the photo above, you can see all the detail from the splatters and the lovely colors of the new Paper Glaze Luxe! 

TIP: You can make a ton of backgrounds in advance by adding a thin layer of Paper Glaze in your favorite color over heavyweight cardstock. Then pull it out when you need it! The paper may curl up a bit, but if you run it through your die cut machine, it will flatten out!
