Mixed Media Project Life Cards

Hey everyone, Katie here! Today I wanted to share how I made these fun, messy, mixed media project life cards using a washi tape background.

I started by just cutting cardstock into some 3x4" and 4x6" cards and then covered them in my favorite black and white tapes. I wanted to tone down the boldness of them though, so I also gave them a coat of gesso.

Next I took some Shimmerz sprays and added a bit of brightness to my cards.

After they dried, I used our adhesive runner to attach some transparencies (by MAMBI) over top of my cards. I was surprised (in a good way!) about how clear the adhesive was. This was the first time I'd used it under something clear and you couldn't even see it!

Thanks for stopping by! Have you used your tapes with mixed media supplies?
