House of Cards January 2018 Challenge

This month we want to see...

Mixed Media and/or Colors
Image result for design seeds january

I'm learning to really like Mixed Media.
There's no right or wrong or "messing up".
And it's fun to experiment with new techniques
that I don't often use in my usual style.

I used mixed media paper for my background
and sprayed it with 3 colors of shimmer mist and water.
I blotted with a paper towel in between spraying 
to get more of the effect I was wanting.
Next I applied some texture paste over a rose stencil.
I distressed and inked the edges of my card base and
tore the edges of the background paper before adhering to the base.
I had a chipboard frame which I painted
and glued on top of the stenciling.
Paper roses were added next, along with some twine.
I added some word stickers and sequins to finish.

So, do you do mixed media?
If you've never tried you should!

I hope you'll join us at
House of Cards this month!
We always love to see what you create!
