Good afternoon and today's card was a result of the Mixed Media Challenge for March - Hints of Spring.
Lately I've been having some fun playing with the Brusho water crystals background. Was working on a St. Pat's card (scheduled for tomorrow) and had an extra background that I thought - with some effort - could fit the bill for this Mixed Media Challenge. So here 'tis:
- Brusho background (I like the colors too!) was stenciled over using some pearlized paste and TH Splatters stencil. Let this dry for a bit, then decided to add some Sparke n Sprinkle Aztec Gold glitter...it's pretty, but I sort of wished afterwards, that I'd left off the glitter. It was going Everywhere! So spritzed some Tattered Angels gold spray over the piece, which helped with the glitter staying put, -- but then the w/c paper looks buckled. Weighting the card down will probably help this problem, but it's buckled in the photo.
- Inkadinkadoo bird image was colored with Intense pencils, then blended with gamsol, and die cut with MFT stitched circle.
- Cottage Cutz sentiment created from a snippet of Brusho background (on tomorrow's card) and a 'wipe-up' piece of vellum. Tested vellum to see how it would work blotting up extra color from the wet brusho background. Didn't work very well as I see it, but used a snippet from the vellum to die cut a 2nd sentiment, which was glued over the green Brusho background. The green base made the vellum color show better. Think I'll add a pearl for the dot over the 'i'.
- Impression Obsession DIE055-N for the branch. Cut from white snippet, then colored with copic shades of green. The green branch has a more delicate spring green than the yellow greens in the Brusho background. This is the shade we're see on the daffodil and tulip stems that are poking their heads up in our yard.
Hope you like this one. It's definitely got several different 'mix media' going on! Along with being submitted to the Mixed Media Card Challenge - March Hints of Spring, it's going over to the Snippet Playground for week 166. Hope you have time to check out both of these fun places and perhaps play along with a fun card.
Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Our day was so-so with the sunshine & overcast, but temp was ok, but it feels damp. It's lovely to see some tiny green things beginning to poke through the earth again. Come again when you can. Big Hugs & hope you had a grand day.
