The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Red

I've got two posts going out at the same time today.  Click here for my CASEplorations post, then come back in a few hours for a very special STAMPlorations post!

It's time for a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge, and seeing as it's February, we've got red with an option of hearts - what else? :)

For my background panel I've used clear embossing paste through a Tim Holtz stencil, then sponged Festive Berries Distress Paint over, sponging the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Once the panel was dry, I flicked water over the sponging.

On another painted panel I sponged Picket Fence Distress Stain through a punchinella stencil and flicked some diluted white acrylic paint over, then once it was dry I cut it with a stitched rectangle die and stamped and heat-embossed the heart image.

For my sentiment panel I sanded a piece of Core'dinations cardstock, then wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen.

Added some fibres at the top of the panel, and it's done.

Pop on over to The Mixed Media Card Challenge to see some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, then add your mixed media card to the gallery.


  1. Love the layout of this totally gorgeous design, Shirley! Really love the look of the sanded Core'dinations with the sentiment...fabulous!

  2. Love both of your panels - each alone would make a lovely card! Wonderful stenciling and pretty embossed heart!

  3. So vibrant, Shirley ... it has me wanting to touch all that yummy texture and cool fibres! Hugs, Anita :)
