Hello, Crafty Friends!
Welcome to February and the start of a new Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. As you know Anything Mixed Media Goes as long as it is not a card and you use at least one stencil.
My DT contribution for January is ... a tag ....
I used dies the ATC/Tag Builder set to cut my tag from a piece of linen textured card which I had at some point used to mop up some left over Bermuda Bay ink. I added a little Strawberry Slush (pink) and stamped the background in Baked Brown Sugar using stamps from the Scribbly Splattery Grunge set before doodling around the edge using my Early Espresso marker. Next I stenciled one of the hearts from the Zen Hearts stencil with Cherry Sparkle Medium and allowed it to dry before adding the white gel pen doodles. I then added the stamped 'love' and 'happiness' (Sentiment Builders: Love and the die-cut phrase 'you & me'. Sequins, gem and fibers finished off the look.
I hope you feel inspired to dig into your crafty resourcefulness and create something to enjoy .... why not link it up with the Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. The theme for the Mixed Media Challenge is always Anything Mixed Media Goes except cards which means projects such as tags, ATCs, canvases, layouts, art journal pages etc,are perfect for entering, and you must have used at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The challenge will close at the end of the month. You can find the full challenge details plus more Mixed Media inspiration here on the STAMPlorations Blog.
Ooops, almost forgot to mention the prizes: one winner as chosen by the Mixed Media DT will receive a $10 gift certificate and two Top Picks will receive a $5 gift certificate each, all of course redeemable at the STAMPlorations Shop ... but that's not all ... if there are 25 or more entries one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive two standard sized stencils of their choice.
That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon with another project to share.
Have a lovely day!
