I want to share a mixed media card with you today using molded

embellishments made with PermaStone Casting Compound from

ACTÍVA. This product is quite versatile and very easy to use.

I mixed the PermaStone casting compound per the

package directions and poured it into my roses and

frame molds. I got busy making multiple pieces because

I was having so much fun. The PermaStone dries pretty

quickly, in about 20-30 minutes.

When completely dry, I removed from the mold and

gave each piece a coat of glaze medium.

Next, I coated each piece with Timeless DecoArt

Chalk Paint.

I painted three roses with Red Velvet Art Anthology

Sorbet paint. This paint is dimensional and thick,

and has a beautiful glitter in it. It even has a

translucency to it if painted on thinly.

I added water to a blob of burnt umber acrylic paint

to make a wash to cover the frame. Set frame aside to dry.

Now let's make the card base. Cut blue card stock to
10" x 7", fold in half to make 5" x 7" card base. Remove
world map page from the Happy Travels 6x6 Paper Pad
and cut at 4-3/4" x 6", and the extra strip needs to be
trimmed at 4-3/4", leaving a small square piece.

Arrange and adhere the leaves with the red molded roses,

everything in place.
