You pushed me toward the tutorials, which I love. This is watercolour and embossing on the background, then watercolor pencils blended with rubbing alcohol on black embossed image mounted overtop. I'm counting the embossing as one of my mediums, hope that's okay!

Here's my card

Default MIX235 - No 1 Fan...Walk On

No 1 Fan by Ozpom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

This LO was created as part of a VSBN challenge, however I think it may qualify for this challenge too. I love creating b/gs using my stash.


I'm in the process of creating a couple of b/gs for some cards...it's been a while since I made a card and will post later if they turn out reasonably ok


Thanks for the challenge and TFL. Happy day

Here's a panel I created yesterday for a card. Unfortunately I'm undecided on the sentiment so haven't completed the card yet but thought I would share the panel with you.

MSM's MIX235 Merry Christmas

Shaving cream technique with some added texture. Messy, but fun. Green under the fingernails. DH asked if that was my Halloween manicure. Um, no.

Another shaving cream background Christmas card - this one using reinkers / ink and acrylic paint as the two mediums. Dasher is heat embossed.
