This is my card for this week’s Mix-ability Challenge on Splitcoast.
I was inspired by the layout of this pretty card by Courtney Kelly. Her card was pinned here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/445152744390202312/ .
I took Courtney’s clean and simple card layout and mixed media’s it up a bit with ink splatters and some white and black acrylic paint. I splattered the background and then stenciled (Ranger Bubble Stencil) with white paint. Once that dried I added some Electric Purple ink on top through the stencil.

For today’s project I used:
659348 Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4PK – Round Bezels, 658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane, Vintaj 1-Piece Circle Bezel Decorative Pendant, 32 mm, Ranger VPKR-658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane Rusted Hardware Kit, Ranger VPKS Vintaj Glaze/Sealer, 2-Ounce, 29906 Vintaj Relief Block, 29899 Vintaj Head Pins, Vintaj Round Nosed Pliers, Ranger Copper Foil Sheets and my Big Shot.
I die cut the center circle from a Ranger Copper Foil Sheet with 659348 Sizzix Framelits Die Set 4PK – Round Bezels and my Big Shot.
I them embossed with 658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane.
I used my finger to dab on some color with 658312 Sizzix DecoEmboss Die – Weathervane and peeled off the backing and adhered it to a Vintaj Circle Bezel Decorative Pendant.
To finish my project I sanded the pendant a bit to let some shine come through the patina with a 29906 Vintaj Relief Block. After sanding I sealed the pendant with Ranger Vintaj Glaze/Sealer. I used Vintaj Round Nosed Pliers and a 29899 Vintaj Head Pin to attach my bead.
