"Time to Dream" Summery Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

Mixed Media Card, Summer, by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's

Welcome to my creative space!

The hot summer weather has settled in here in Ohio, so I've created this card with a cool, beachy feel featuring ScrapBerry's beautiful Tropics Collection. With the "Time to Dream" sentiment from the Tropics Cards page, this sweet card can be used for a variety of events from graduations and birthdays, to celebrating a special accomplishment. It's always nice to have a few cards in my stash that I can grab and send when needed for one of those special occasions.

The theme of the July/August challenge at ScrapBerry's is summer.
Be sure to stop by the ScrapBerry's blog to check out all the
gorgeous inspiration by the design team.

Tips and Techniques

The focal point of this sweet cluster includes the beautiful ScrapBerry's Rose and Cherry Blossom flowers. I've also tucked in a Seaside Polymer Seashell and Floral Embroidery Crystal Sticker to complete the beachy summer feel.

For a light and airy look, I stamped the background with ScrapBerry's Butterflies Wings stamp, stenciled opposite corners with a flourish design, and misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Bells of Ireland Green Starburst. When that was completely dry, I dry brushed with white gesso.

Of course no card is complete without a little bling, so I sprinkled Minnie Pearls Prills and Shaved Ice Fragments in and around the cluster.
