Default MIX55: Clear Love

Challenge Title: Clear Love
Hostess: tiffguam (Tiffany Johnson)
Keyword: MIX55
Gallery: Forums at Splitcoaststampers

Hello and welcome to another awesome week of the Mix-Ability Challenge! Can you believe it's been 54 weeks already?! Wow! If you're new to the Mix-Ability Challenge you can read more about it Forums at Splitcoaststampers (and then come back real quick-like)!

This week, I challenge you to incorporate a clear element. I want to see your love of all things clear! It can be anything, but here are some ideas:
  • Embossing Powder
  • Gel Medium
  • Transparency
  • Plastic packaging
  • syran wrap
  • sandwich bag
  • glass beads

I cannot wait to see the techniques you use with those clear elements! So, show your "Clear Love" and get messy (or stay clean if that's your preference)!

Please make sure you use keyword "MIX55" when you upload your creations.

Here's my card:


Video Tutorial:
<object width="640" height="480"><param name="movie" value="//www.youtube.com/v/kaH377jJWsM?version=3&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/kaH377jJWsM?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="640" height="480" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

Happy Valentine's Day! <3

This sounds like so much fun! I hope that I can get up to my craft room after work. I remember someone made the most beautiful rolled rose from inked clear plastic for a HYCCT card - I've wanted to try that ever since. And even at this early hour in the morning I have a couple of other ideas too! What a brilliant challenge - thank you.
And with such a cool looking card I'm sure the video is going to be great to watch too - but that'll have to wait till after work.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

On my Mix Forums at Splitcoaststampers for today, I used glossy accents to paint the hearts and for my mediums, I used distress paint, pigment ink and thread (stitching.) It was fun to make.

Thanks for looking!

This is my first time in the MIX challenge. Using something clear was perfect for me because for a couple years before I discovered dies and EF's, I made all my cards with vector drawings, reverse printed, and adhered to white cardstock. Here is my Forums at Splitcoaststampers card

This was a really fun challenge. I used a piece of acetate that I embossed and added copper to. Here is my card:

I had great fun taking Linus on a Mixed Media journey into the unknown yesterday (and losing a whole precious quarter sheet of acetate in the journey, LOL), and since I used gesso as well as inks and clear EP on my Inspiration Challenge card today, it's for this too. I probably wouldn't have thought of embossing the birds otherwise, so thank you!
