MIX211 With Love

Happy Friday!

I’m hosting the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoast this week! The challenge is to use a heart in your project along with at least two mediums. I used Stamps from Impression Obsession, inks, watercolor and a little white acrylic paint on my project.  You can see the challenge HERE.With Love Jeanne_Streiff

I started by stamping my flower (). I used my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) to stamp the image repeatedly adding inks to the stamp until I got a good blend. Did you notice the new My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners? I love them!!! 1 With Love Jeanne_Streiff

Next I added my heart () and some loose watercoloring around the flower. I stamped my heart directly on top of my flower. I added some details to the flower with white acrylic paint. 2 With Love Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the sentiment with black ink. The  My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners came in especially handy here because My paper was a little warped from the watercoloring It held the center down very firmly so I could stamp my sentiment without magnets sticking together.. nice!

After I was done with this step I misted the back side of the paper lightly with water and let it dry with a couple heavy books on top to get it smooth again before assembling my card. 3 With Love Jeanne_Streiff

I watercolored a splashy image (see colors below). After it was completely dry I stamped my sentiment with black ink. 1 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I inked up my leaf stamps in orange (Spiced Marmalade) and then tapped in a bit of deep red Aged Mahogany) ink randomly before stamping. Because it was on watercolor I needed to stamp more than once to get a nice solid image. I kept going stamping leaves until I had framed the sentiment.2 Thankful Jeanne_Streiff

I finished my card by adding some gold metallic tape from Hobby Tape under the sentiment words and adhering the panel to a kraft card base.
