I'm a happy gal with new toys. Had a chance to do some shopping around Chicago and on my way home yesterday and picked up some new toys including some paint daubers and a new stencil as well as some robot stickers. I used them to meet today's Mixability challenge to smudge or smear a frame around our focal point. I started with the bg piece for each card which used the TCW Mini Love Beads stencil with direct to paper and sponged Marina Mist over Bashful Blue. I then took my paints (Weather Vane and Cloudy Blue) with the dauber then my fingers to smear around the edges and did the same for my sentiment pieces-adding a bit of sponged Poppy Parade and stamped rock 'n rolled chevrons. I embossed silver in the TH Steampunk ef and sponged some black on those. The happy together card alos has a circle of black embossed in the Chevron ef while the other card has a sponged V Pattern stencil. Both sentiments were stamped first in Versamark then Poppy Parade and embossed with clear ep. The stickers were already dimensional and I sponged around them a bit and popped some of my sentiment panels on each card too.
