MIX95 Merry Christmas

It’s time for a new Mix-Ability Challenge on Splitcoast!

This week we were challenged to use a feather in our project… that was easy! Thanks Cheerio for the pretty feather donation.

I made my background by first stamping  (Wild Honey ink directly on the embossing folder and then using it as a stamp). Then I sponged some Shabby Shutters and Broken China ink randomly on my card. I used the same embossing folder (Chevron & Latice Texture Fades) to emboss.MIX95 Merry Christmas 1 Jeanne_Streiff

I used Sizzix Holiday Greens & Sizzix Holiday Words to decorate.MIX95 Merry Christmas 3 Jeanne_Streiff

I decided it needed a pop of color and added some splats with diluted Shinhan Poster Colors Poster Color (Magenta). Great paint.. I seriously used a pinhead sized dot of paint with water to get all the pin splats. MIX95 Merry Christmas 2 Jeanne_Streiff

Always Keep Your Scraps!

It’s Mix-Ability Challenge day on Splitcoast! This week’s challenge (MIX94) is a fun one… it’s to make a project using any of the previous challenges.  I decided to go way back and do the first challenge MIX01 which was Yen Yang… use something shiny and something matte in your project. For my shiny I used Stickles as a glaze over the cardstock and for my matte I used Gesso.

This was a scrap I had from another project. The scrap was made with ink spray with a little Gesso dabbed on it. Joy 1 Jeanne_Streiff

I added a piece of red cardstock behind the die cut word and then added the red letters on top so my surface was even. Joy 3 Jeanne_StreiffPrep green cardstock by swiping green ink and Gesso on. Add a thin layer of Stickles by squirting a bit on and smearing it across the paper. Let dry.Joy 4 Jeanne_Streiff
