My First Mix-Ability Challenge

I have wanted to try the Mix-Ability challenges on Splitcoast since they began, but when school is going on, I am too crazy to get paint out haha! So today I tried my first one, along with the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge: Doodle Defined.
I used Flourishes' Poppy Patch (my favorite Flourishes set!) and stamped on watercolor paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink (both available at i {heart} papers). I painted the poppies with acrylic paint (smooth texture) and let some of the black outline run. The outer subtle color was painted with Linen Distress ink. My rough texture is distressing. I doodled around the circle for a hand drawn border. Everything is adhered using ISP Red Line Tape and 
Sticky Thumb Dimensional Dots.

It was a lot of fun to make this! More Mixed Media in my future, I hope!

Some really fun news:

  4. Love the hand drawn border. So clever and the paint making the black run a little makes the poppies look so realistic! Great card Judy.

  5. Oooh goodness. I love that bit of burlap. I need to remember to find some of that! LOVE it!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. It means a lot and I appreciate you!
