I hadn't had a chance to play along in today's mixed media challenge, but when I sat down at long last and was perusing Pinterest, I saw the perfect inspiration for the challenge to use hearts. I loved this canvas so I went in this direction. I will make another card later with another piece I started, but in the meanwhile, I had some leftover blue reinker mixed with Gesso on the credit card I was using to spread it on my original piece and it was such a thin coat that it dried right away. I then punched it with my heart and found these cute birds I'd die cut from a gelatin plate print earlier. I also had the piece of woodgrain that I tore and layered behind. I wanted to go CAS, but I didn't like the stark look of the Wisteria base so I ended up pulling out another gelatin plate print for the bg. I rounded two corners and added a darker purple mat behind. My sentiment was stamped on white then double punched with the word window punch and is popped as is the larger bird. Will be back later tomorrow to comment on cards, but have my DD's last h.s. swim meet tomorrow.
