Mix It Up!
Today is the day that the Mix It Up challenge blog goes live with the first challenge and Team B's projects. We are a monthly technique challenge blog featuring various techniques on mixed media projects, altered art, and paper crafts such as cards, tags, mini albums, ATCs, 3-D projects and scrapbook layouts! Are you excited? I sure am! We would love to see you enter this challenge and it's a good one. The challenge is to use embossing. You can do heat embossing, dry embossing, or think outside the box as well.
Looks different in the sunlight in the picture below. It is more true to color in the picture above.
The frame chippie is from Creative Embellishments and I painted acrylic paint in two colors. Once the paint was dry I stamped some script stamps onto it with adirondack Watering Can ink. The frame was popped up on foam dots. The feathers, bits of flowers and bits of picks were from my stash. I did end up adding some stamping to the feathers. The little jar is filled with magical fairy dust (embossing powder) and the lid was glued and a bow added to it. The butterfly is from Reneaboquets store.
I used two different colors of embossing powder through the CW stencil. Layering powders is a fun way to create new color combos and enjoy your powders.
I would like to share this canvas with these amazing challenges:
I need to learn to explore outside of my comfort zone.
I used stencils, embossing, and about 4 different stamps on the background
I used about 4 different stamps on the background and 2 different stamps on the flowers and the chippie frame
