Things With Wings - May Mixed Media Challenge @ STAMPlorations

Hello, Crafty Friends!

It's Sunday 6th May today which means, it's the start of a new Mixed Media Challenge combined with a Blog Hop & Linky Party over at STAMPlorations. This month we are looking for non-card mixed media makes following the theme of 'Things With Wings' using at least one stencil (any brand).

My DT contribution for May is ... a little tag ....

... not quite in Spring colours, but with a rich golden background, guess I've been digging over too much soil in the garden ready for sowing and planting veggies and hedges hence the earthy feel. 😁

Gold acrylic effect medium on a background of mopped up ink with a bit of stenciling (Christmas Tree 1), stamping (Art MarksMixed Media Grunge) and a touch of white Craft ink around the edges for a dreamy look finished off with a beautiful die-cut butterfly (Flutter Zen 1 Layering Dies), doodles and gems.

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 this month's Mixed Media Challenge is 'Things With Wings'. Any mixed media make following the winged theme 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. You can link up as many winged projects as you want as long as they follow the rules and have their own separate blog post. The linky 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 $15 gift certificate and two randomly drawn winners will receive a $5 gift certificate each, all of course redeemable at the STAMPlorations Shop.

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon with another project to share. Please leave a comment and join the hop.

Have a lovely day!
