Mixed media

When we think of mixed media we usually think of a canvas but mixed media can also we on card format. So here is my idea for a mixed media card.

So I started with a background using Crafters Companion sparkle pens, then stamping in dark blue Archival ink I used one of Sheena’s stamps from way back. Then I stamped various stamps from  Indigo Blu cause I like their stamps and coloured in Clean Colour water colour pens. So a real mix match of different products just to prove anything goes. Finished off with decoration of Liquid Pearls.

Hope you fine this inspiring.

One back ground two cards

For today’s post I used one piece of master board background made using Distressed Oxide Inks, these are from the latest release. Love these colours! Then stamping and adding some die cut mountboard shapes which has also been through an embossing folder to add texture. Thanks for dropping bye my blog.

Fused Glass

Just occasionally I like to be the student and learn something new. This happened a couple of weeks ago and I had a really lovely afternoon letting my  creativity loose on glass. I made two love hanging pictures. Here they are one to hang in the lounge and the blue one for the bedroom. Great to do something different.

3D Stencils

For today’s post I have used the same stencil and different mediums.  My first card is using Distressed Oxides and my second card uses Imagination Crafts Starlight paint. They are quite different but I like than both equally. What do you think do you have a preference ?

Versamagic Inks

My challenge for today was to create samples using Versamagic inks. So here are my samples so far.  sample one used an Embossing folder and used the inks direct to paper. The flowers are from one of Darcy Wilkinson stamp sets for Paperartsy.

Sample number two used the stamp from the above set plus some Woodward stamps

Hope you like my ideas.
