April Mixed Media Card Challenge

It's a day full of posts for this girl :)  Check out my Featured Designer post for the CAS Mix Up here. And don't forget to check out my Guest Designer post for the Graciellie Designs blog hop here.

I'm back with another Mixed Media Card Challenge.


The challenges run from the 1st to the 25th of each month, with the winners announced on the last day of the month.  To play along, simply create a mixed media card and enter it at the Mixed Media Card Challenge.  Be sure to check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team!  So much inspiration!

New to mixed media?  Just combine two or more mediums on your card.  So many choices: watercolor, gesso, acrylics, distress inks, pencils, crayons, Copics, other inks and on and on...

And speaking of on and on...I threw everything but the kitchen sink at this and still kept it fairly CAS.  After stamping the sunshine image and sentiment in Archival Ink it was masked.  Then I stamped the brick pattern in chalk paint.  Next came coloring...Polychromos pencils and Gamsol followed by some PITT Artist Big Brushes. There's Wink of Stella and Stickles for some added sparkle.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Neenah Solar White
Ink:  Jet Black Archival
Stamps:  STAMPlorations New Beginnings and Mixed Media Grunge
All the other stuff:  Polychromos pencils, Gamsol, PITT Artist Big Brushes, Wink of Stella, Stickles, Prima Chalk Paint

Can't wait to see what you create for the challenge this month!

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
