I have a fun project today using stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions.
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.
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.
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.
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. Prep 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.
Die cut two pine branches.
