Susan asked the design team to create something "mixed media" any way we wanted to this month. I used several different techniques and mediums for this card.
I started with a piece of Susan K. Weckesser's Live In Color paper and a piece of Cordinations Cardstock. I distressed the edges of both papers. Then, I used The Crafters Workshop, Folk Art Flower stencil. I used molding paste from Golden and an old credit card to apply the paste through the stencil. I LOVE how it came out!!
I used Tattered Angels Gilmmer Mist - Suede and Ranger Dylusions inks over the molding paste. Awesome! The orange, green and suede colors work wonderful together! I also went around the edges of the paper with Ranger Distress Ink - Mustard Seed. Some paint drops finished the background off.
When we got our design team packages from Susan, this card was inside. I have been waiting for the perfect place to use it, and here it is! The colors are gorgeous and the saying is so true, "Believe follow your dreams". I also added some gauze behind it and a parenthesis stamp from Susan's A Little Grunge Love stamp set. I finished it off with a flower.
I hope you are inspired to make awesome mixed media art today!!
