Combining my card making with my love of all things mixed media today with this card. I was inspired by several challenges:
- SCS - Color Challenge 490
- Lunchtime Sketch
- Crafting When We Can - Bright Colors
- Mixed Media Card Challenge - Summer
- Tok Bobok - Mixed Media
This card was so much fun! When I first saw the color challenge on Splitcoast and pulled out the 4 papers I was not too sure I could pull it off but as I was working I liked it so much I made TWO! This is the first one.
Rather than use patterned paper I took a paper with a faint script running across it and gave it some mixed media flair. I began by making a yellow paint with Primary Elements powder and Glazing Medium and sponged it on through sequin waste. Next I mixed the same paint in a red color and applied it using the side of small gift card. I finished off by mixing a pale blue color into molding paste and applied it through a stencil.
On the stamped image I mixed the same blue Primary Elements with gum arabic and water and spattered it on the image. Then I mixed the same yellow color into the molding paste and applied it through the same stencil. I added more of the red lines to tie it all together. It's done on Cryogen White paper from the Paper Temptress - I love how it sparkles! I finished it off with 3 little pale blue Pez-A-Bling squares in the upper left corner.
So what do you think?
