Mixed Media Zodiac Sign Cards

Today I am finally completing my ScrapBerry Far Off Worlds use up the entire pack challenge by creating 12 new cards using the last 12 pieces of ephemera I had.

For each of the twelve zodiac sign ephemera sheets I created an original and unique mixed media background using my gel plate and a variety of inks and paints.

Pop over and check out the full video, and don’t forget to let me know which of the twelve cards was your favorite.
