Mixed Media {Mon}: Inspired by Encanto Cards

Monday, January 17, 2022

 Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Have you watched "Encanto" from Disney? I loved all the flowers, plants, colors in that movie...so, here are a couple of cards inspired by the movie...using the same background + succulents + sentiment stamps.

Card #1

I colored this one with alcohol-based markers and added some crinkled paper embellishments.

Card #2

This one looks almost the same, but the background was dry embossed and I added some die cut leaves (from my gel plate printed papers). I also used some alcohol-based markers here and adhered the stamped image + sentiment with foam tape

Which card is your favorite?
