I've got two posts going live at the same time today. For my CASEplorations post, click here.
Hello and welcome to the February challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. This month the theme is Love - what else? We've also got an optional element of buttons (stamped, die-cut, real, whatever).
I stamped the base card with words from one of the new STAMPlorations sets, Hashtag Authentic (I love this set!):
On a panel of watercolour card (I thought I'd picked up mixed media card, but the watercolour card worked equally well) I painted cream and eau-de-nile acrylic paint and translucent turquoise paint, dragged a bit of silver Distress Paint over it, inked up the net stamp (Stampendous) with black and smoky grey Versafine and stamped randomly over the panel, then stencilled some hearts with modelling paste using the ARTplorations Hearts All Over stencil.
I die-cut a stitched tag (Waltzingmouse) from kraft card and stamped it with the I heart you sign from Vignette: Eclectic Florals and used a scrap of thin ribbon to tie it round the panel and through a bone button from my stash.
Stick it all together, add a bit of washi tape and you're done. So, what will you make? Pop over to the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog for some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, then join in.
