Default MIX41 - No Paper Allowed!

Challenge Title: No Paper Allowed!
Hostess: Understandblue aka Lydia
Keyword: MIX41

Hello and welcome to another Mix-Ability challenge here on Splitcoast! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!

If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal, instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

First of all, I'm waiting for the Mix-Ability Challenge to be older than me! 41 was a while ago

My challenge today is sort of a challenge to myself - it's something I struggle with because I love paper so, so much and find it so easy to create something fun with.

So I decided that my challenge would be a no paper allowed card!

Here are the rules.

You can use a single layer of paper for your cardstock, and that's it.

You must have a multi-layer card (at least one additional layer besides the base) and none of the other layers can be paper.

Here are some of the things that are allowable second layers:

Metal or foil.
Modeling paste.
Gesso.
Glazes.
Gels, like bead gels or other textured mediums.
Acrylic Paint or something that has a heavy body to it.
Canvas.
Fabric.
Wood.
Chipboard.

For my sample, I chose a few. I painted my card base with acrylic paint. Then I took two chipboard squares and I painted them with Ten Seconds Studio two step Ver-Day paints to give them an aged metal look.

I used copper foil tape to accent the metallic theme.

I rubbed my background with Inkagold for a little more metal.

Have fun - I can't wait to see what you do!

Now, here are some samples to inspire you!

This sounds super interesting. I like it and even better, I see we have a "like" button. Woo hooooooo!!!! But why isn't there a "like" button on my post?

Because you're not able to "like" your own posts - everybody but you will see a "like" button on your posts. Hope that makes sense!

Great challenge, Lydia - a really challenging one. Other than paper and ink pads I counted 6 media used in my Remembering Karen card.

Here is mine ! It is simple, because I was afraid I would ruin it, if I tried to do something else! I thought about coloring on the foil. Anyway, I have had this package of foil for probably 10 years! Never opened it, and it really went thru with the die beautifully!
Thanks Lydia!

I just finished a card and now realize that vellum wasn't on the list of acceptable second layers... Oh well, maybe next time

Lydia. I tried, I really did. I got my card done with some very interesting products, and textures, but I couldn't resist putting some of my quilled paper roses. The card just was requesting them. So it was either listen to you or to the card. I chose the card. SORRY. Great challenge.
Here is my card:

I thought I would try to sneak this in as the only paper I used was the fish.. On second thought I guess I could have tried to paint he fish right on the BG as they were painted anyway... The mediums used are Modeling clay, acrylic paint and I stamped the little ships and colored with watercolor pencils.

Most of my layering is ink and embossing (dry and heat) but I used a sentiment sticker as well. Layered Without Paper
