HELLO AND TOGETHER - Cards - Nadia Cannizzo

Good morning everyone! It's Nadia with you today sharing a card set I created for The Dusty Attic.

The Dusty Attic have a HUGE website.. it includes:
Product Gallery HERE
The ning site and gallery HERE
The blog HERE

The Dusty Attic started out with just producing chipboard pieces but have since developed their own paint, flowers, and some more art mediums. 

I try to combine all of them on my Dusty Attic projects so you can get an idea of their gorgeous products. 

"Together" card

For both of these cards, I used a thick mixed media card base which would hold mediums well. 

I started by applying Tim Holtz tissue paper (Melagne) with gel medium roughly. I then applied gesso over it before adding some stamping and colour using The Dusty Attic Fine Silver and Lavender Blush paints, Gelatos, Ecoline water colours and some 7 Dots Studio 9th Wave collection papers and die cuts. 

I applied some mesh and then some Dusty Attic flowers in Evening Blush, before applying my chipboard. 

I treated this gorgeous Geometric Dusty Attic chipboard shape with some Gesso before applying Viva 3D Modelling paste with my fingertips over it. 

"Hello" card
For this card, I started by applying clear gesso to my 7 Dots 9th Wave paper, and then some colour with the Dusty Attic paints I used above, Gelatos and Ecoline water colour. 

I covered the beautiful String Of Hearts chipboard piece with 3D Modelling Paste again.  

I did the same for these Heart Arrows #1 shapes . I then added a touch of Silks purple paint on both the pieces.
