The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Family


It's time for a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge, and this month our theme is Family with an optional element of Arrows.


My background panel was created with a Gelli plate and acrylic inks, using lace, stencils and punchinella.  At the bottom of the panel I used Fran-tage embossing powder.  The copper settled at the top edge of the inked area, which helped to define the ground for the birdies to stand on.

The birds were stamped and die-cut, then coloured with Distress Inks, and some of them got extra wings or glossy accents on the eyes and beaks.

The sentiment was handwritten on to black card with a white pen, then the words were chopped into random shapes and adhered onto the panel.

Pop on over to the MMCC blog for some scrumptious inspiration from the rest of the team, and join in with your family-themed card.
