There's a new challenge on the blog, hosted by my lovely teamie Shery, owner of STAMPlorations. The challenge blog is called The Mixed Media Card Challenge and it's aimed at a bit of a gap in the challenge market: more messy than CAS, with a focus on using mixed media. Oh, yes please! Shery's having a design team call so I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring.
I used the colour scheme from the latest ColourQ challenge:
And some stamps by Magenta where they are having an Anything Goes challenge.
The clear stencilled card panel was a leftover from the Online Stencilled class. I watercoloured some Evergreen Bough and Shabby Shutters over it, then used a fan brush to drag some extra colour over the Shabby Shutters and added splatters to the Evergreen Bough. Stamped the images onto spare card and splodged some colours on (Ripe Persimmon, Dusty Concord, Shabby Shutters, Evergreen Bough) and cut them out. That was when I decided to stitch them - would probably have been easier before fussy cutting. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations Sentiment Builders: Happy.
