My Mixed Media
I decided to get back into the Mix-Ability challenge today on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is Loving Layers. My card was also for the Queen for the Day, Robin. I didn't case a particular card for the queen this week. She seems to love birds and mixed media. I did use a stamp set from ODBD for my card as she is on their DT.
A lot went into this card. I started with brushing on Gesso, than poured drops of acrylic paint onto my card. After brushing that on, I tamed it down a bit again with Gesso. I used spray templates for my designs at the bottom and the blue circles. Inka Gold Metallic Rub in silver was spread over the templates. The circles turned blue because of the paints I had brushed on. I have taped on three small strips of torn, patterned paper
Yes, my sentiment is supposed to have a bit of color on it. I didn't want it all white but I don't think I'm happy with it now.
I colored my image with Copics. To get the color on the cardstock under my mixed media layer, I sprayed with Heidi Swapp color shine in coral and the same was done for the mat under the bird image.
