For Featured Stamper Challenge 333 and Mix-Ability Challenge 21...
Congratulations to Tina for being our chosen FS this week!! What a huge gallery of fun! I chose this cute birthday card to case. I kept her theme and layout, but didn't use any stamps and changed the media used to make the background, banner, and sentiment. Enjoy your week, Tina!
I used the Mix-Ability 21: Brilliant Pastels Challenge for my background. SO FUN. I have always been scared of Mixed Media but I had so much fun with this, thanks to Ky's amazing video and to Dina's encouragement (xo!). I am hooked.
I used Distress Stains with the direct to paper technique Ky showed, and then painted with an Acrylic Paint wash. This is two layers. I then stamped randomly with bubble wrap using White Craft Ink and Silver Pigment Ink, and embossed those sections with Clear EP. I used a jute ribbon scrap for some texture inbetween my panels (on the right).
Love how this turned out -- but loved the process even more :)
Thanks for taking a peek!
