Mixed Media



I wanted to try the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoaststampers. That's a really fun challenge and Dina Kowal, the hostess, has sooooo many ideas and informative tutorials on mixed media. The challenge for this week can be found here.

This week's challenge is Pop Goes Your Color Wheel! You can use all warm colors with a pop of a cool color or all cool colors with a pop of a warm color. I chose all warm with one cool color..blue.

The colors I'm using came from Tattered Angels glimmer mist/Dragonfly (blue) and Party Pink. Also, I used dylusions ink spray/postbox red and pure sunshine.

Other items used:  BasicGrey flourish corner stamps, pearls, crimper

I also made my card for the Queen for the Day challenge #161. The new queen is Joyce Ann aka AnniePanda. This is the card I chose to case.

Entering the challenge at Little Red Wagon #182 (Crimp my Style) to use a crimper on your project.
I crimped a panel down the right side of my card.

Also, I'm entering the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog-Anything Goes
