I used a sneak peek of a new stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps for my card (released tonight). Come join us at the release party tonight for chatter and lots of samples and prizes. See all the details -> HERE
The image was colored with Touch Twin markers. I have a video tutorial on how I make my clouds -> HERE
This is my card for this week’s Mix-Ability (MIX14) Challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge this week is Modern Art. Use at least 2 coloring mediums to create a free flowing piece of art.
Here’s my card using acrylic paints, stamps from Impression Obsession, an embossing folder from Sizzix and inks from Clearsnap.
The background is painted (Gelli Printing… thanks Lydia!) with acrylic paints and then splattered with Smooch Glitz ( Goldrush).
I sponged the edges with Colorbox Chalk ink (Pumpkin Spice).
I stamped the sentiment (Impression Obsession CL427 Thank You) in Pumpkin Spice, die cut (Sizzix Fancy Labels #4), sponged the edges and then splattered with Smooch Glitz Goldrush.
I cut and then embossed (Sizzix Textured Impressions Dotted Squares Set) the red panel and then lightly skimmed a little white acrylic paint over the raised areas.
Assemble and add a couple pearls.
Stamps: Impression Obsession ( CL427 Thank You)
Inks: Clearsnap (Colobox Chalk Pumpkin Spice, Smooch Glitz Goldrush)
Die cuts/embossing: Sizzix (Textured Impressions Dotted Squares Set, Sizzix Fancy Labels #4)
Adhesives: Scotch ATG Tape runner

My card uses the following IO products: CL463 Hydrangea CLEAR Set, DIE044-Y Hydrangea die Set
I’m thankful for my friends, flowers, colors and die cuts. Ha!
I started out with one of my Gelli print backgrounds (see the leaves and ribbon?).
I took Clearsnap Premium Dye Inks in Banana, Tangerine & Guava and swiped the pads on some white cardstock.
I die cut a gazillion flowers out with the DIE044-Y Hydrangea die Set and my Big Shot.
I added pearls to the flower centers and added them to my card.
Go looky at what the IO girls did!
