April Mixed Media Challenge

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Welcome to April 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 April is ... a sunshine themed ATC ....

I started off with a piece of cream card I had used to mop up left over red and yellow brusho from my craft mat to which I added some stamping in Tangerine Tango using stamps from the Mixed Media Elements set. Next I added some scrap pieces of a coloured Color Bloom page and gave it a thin coat of yellow with Liquitex Ink and dabbed some Moved Lawn Distress Paint through the Daisy Dance stencil before stamping the daisy from the Bloom Sketches set into place. I then added some more stamping using the net stamp from the Scribbly Splattery Grunge set, added the heart frame and some detail using the Dots And Dashes stencil and clear Acrylic Effect Paste. I picked up som of the texture with Florentine Treasure Gold, added my Hello Sunshine sentiment, added some doodles and finished off with a floral charm.

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!
