Anything But A Card: Mixed Media

May 6, 2016

No cards in sight today… it’s time for Fun Fridays: Anything But a Card!


You can bet the Jill’s fingers are inky once you see what she’s created for us today…


Download complete supplies and instructions HERE.

Our Creative Die, 51-234 Floral Butterfly, is the perfect size for larger-than-a-card mixed media creations such as this. It makes the perfect fluttering focal point.



It’s amazing what you can ‘create’ with a brightly colored background and layered Creative Dies.


And since it’s Friday, here’s an extra dose of fun. Using these same techniques, Jill created a second project using our Creative Die, 51-236 Coy.



Layers of paper, paint, dies, and stamping give this mixed media art journal page texture and interest.


So why not use your card-making supplies and expand your artistic horizons? We’d love to see what you come up with… you can share your Penny Black stamped and die cut creations in our Penny Circle Flickr Gallery and/or our Facebook page.


And speaking of Facebook… don’t forget!

    The Wooden Plaque would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift.

    I have made so many cards & tags for so long, that I recently started doing mixed media mounted on matt board scraps, usually 5×7 or 8×10, due to the ease of framing ….. and giving them as gifts. Thank you for the beautiful and inspirational ideas! As always, Penny Black does not disappoint!!
