Mixed Media Take Two

4 Comments

YIKES I JUST REALIZED I DIDN’T PUT IN ANY CREAM!!!

(INSERT MAJOR SAD FACE!)  SORRY ABOUT THAT!

I wanted to try my hand again at Mixed Media and I stumbled upon this

great Challenge site called the Mixed Media Color Challenge and I

felt like I hit the jackpot!….I took it as a positive sign.

Not sure I had as much such success as last time and I kinda

ended up embellishing it more than I had originally planned,

but I still enjoyed creating it!

Here are a few additional snapshots to show you that I in fact

do have some mixed media under there.

Started with straight blue ink.

Applied Gesso with a Feather brush.

First mistake….I put glitter on the stamped leaf image

while the ink was wet.  (Note to self-Glitter should be LAST!)

Versamark doesn’t stick well to glitter.

Added some other images using white ColorBox ink and

Stampin UP- Turquoise  (not in photo).

The white ink wasn’t vibrant enough so let’s try

white embossing powder.

Used my fingers to ink up the edges and do some blending!

Since the middle of the card the leaves were so hard to

see, that’s when I decided to embellish it more!

Hope you have a great day…and if you have time

go check out the Mixed Media Challenge..

I linked it up for you!

Enjoy,
