Making Mixed Media projects with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second August post. This time I decided to show you a couple of Summer projects that can be made with our gorgeous Die Versions dies.
August means Summer for us here in Israel. Summer means shore and sea. Yes, we live near the sea and also I personally don't like sand and sun as the country we do love it a lot. So today I made a card that is totally dedicated to celebration of sea  and sun and it's totally different from the usual cards that I  make.
 First I don't usually make cards that celebrate general things, such as seasons, nature or life in general. Then usually I don't make cards that have scenes  stamped over the themed patterned paper. So this card card is not my usual one, but I like the result a lot.
First I made the die cut with a word CELEBRATE CUT- OUT DIE   from the patterned paper and outlined it inside. This is so far one of my most favorite dies from this year releases and I use it a lot as we always have something to celebrate.

Then I made a stamped scene with brown pigmented ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. As you understand ALL STAMPS are from Inspired by Stamping new releases.
As you can see one single die cut made this whole card as it's on the top and so much visible!

This is my second project for today and this time I decided to try  stencil over stencil technique as my background and to add  Die Versions  die as my focal point over my Mixed Media tag.
The first layer was made with flower  stencil and distress Ranger inks. I just grabbed a few of my inks and mixed some colors to make this colorful background using a simple cosmetic sponge.
The second layer was made with Gel Medium and bubbles  stencil and after it was dry (quite a lot of waiting time) the bubbles became clear and I just added green mist all over the background and wiped the clear bubbles to get this almost white look.
As the main focal point I added Die Versions Island cove Whispers die cut  (this is just a  part of the bigger die with a small  house on it, but I just used a part of the die cut on the tag). The die cut was covered with a mix of glitters and I added a small metal bird charm over the tag too. Some ribbon was glued on the bottom of my tag and some was tied on the top.

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!  Please be sure to check back to the DV Blog often for more great ideas on how to use your dies!  And please share with us what you make on the DV Facebook Page.
