Today's creation was so much fun to make. I used two SCS Challenges to inspire me and came up with something I really like.
Congratulations to Tina Hale for being our chosen the Splitcoast Featured Stamper this week!! What a huge gallery of fun! I chose this cute birthday card to case. I kept her theme and layout, but didn't use any stamps and
changed the media used to make the background, banner, and sentiment.
I used the Mix-Ability 21: Brilliant Pastels Challenge for my
background. SO FUN. I have always been scared of Mixed Media but I had
so much fun with this, thanks to Ky's amazing video and to my friend, Dina's
encouragement (xo!). I am hooked.
I used Distress Stains with the direct to paper technique Ky showed, and
then painted with an Acrylic Paint wash. This is two layers. I then
stamped randomly with bubble wrap using White Craft Ink and Silver
Pigment Ink, and embossed those sections with Clear EP. I used a jute
ribbon scrap for some texture inbetween my panels (on the right).
Super fun to do!
