Stamp School: Intro to Mixed Media & Watercolor Powders!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week! I had a really fun time working on tonight’s project. It is a mixed media card and the thing I love about mixed media is that anything goes!


I even used the scratch paper that protects my table to make the envelope! Watch the video to see how!

Here is the link to the butterfly card tutorial, I used Mod-Podge as a resist instead of embossing powder on that one. Think of all of the supplies you have and how you can incorporate them into your next card! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Lovely card. I got my nuance watercolor powder yesterday. Will work with it this weekend. I was so pleased it didn’t take much time to get my order.

  2. Gorgeous card. Love the idea for the envelope and the embossed background is spectacular.

    What gold pigment ink and embossing powder did you use?


  3. Great tutorial… Love how you framed / masked the rose. So much easier than a detailed mask, and the results were stunning. Looking forward to seeing Lost Coast Linda in Clearwater the first Saturday in February, and checking out the Nuance powders in person! Lindsay, you make “mixed media” seem so easy!
