I was chosen to be on the Dirty Dozen team. Whew! What an honor. It is something I could only dream about. And, now it has come true. It has been an exciting day now that the reveal has been made. It was hard keeping it a secret for a while.
O.K., now to my card.
Holy Smokes! Look at this bright card. I made it for the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
I'm working on Mixed Media and finding it so much fun. Really, my card is not this bright in real life. I tweaked and worked with my photo software but it just wanted me to post a bright card.
The challenge was: BAG IT:
Use a plastic bag as your "printing plate" and make a background for your project.
I used a Wal-Mart bag torn open and placed my acrylic paints on it. I brushed and smeared them around with my fingers. Then, I placed my cardstock on top of it, pressed on it, and got the colors. I used two different colors and did each one separately. The stamping of the sunflower, grapes, key, and sentiment was done next. My sunflower was stamped and over-stamped in different colors. The center of the flower was done with Liquitex Modeling Paste.
I'll enter my card here: Inspired by Stamping March Customer Gallery
