There are several challenges that caught my eye and inspired me this month which I would like to join in with and I will list them below, so today I am sharing a card I have been working on for the last few days which dabbles in mixed media something I am fairly new to and always learning mostly by experiments that don't always work lol, but hay ho that's crafting and that's what I love about it.
I apologise for the photo's but the last 4 days have been grey and overcast dreadful for photography and to get these I had to balance the card onto a large plant in the conservatory.
sorry about the colour in this photo
Next step I made my card blank in white card and stamped the lovely distress corners one of my fav stamps from the Tim Holtz visual artistry collections range of stamps , using distress markers in the same colours as above inks and the spritzer tool these were added in various places on the card edges also onto the main paper, I also added some black soot very liberally. This done the main paper was attached to card blank and I added very small buttons to the burlap flowers and added knots of twine, the wooden word "love" was distressed with tea dye distress ink and an Idea-ology metal tab (precious) was added beneath the heart.
again sorry for the greenish tint on the photo really wish the sun would shine here soon!
Phew hope you managed to stay with me through this long post, as I mentioned at the beginning several challenges inspired me to make this card, I really enjoy the challenge of mixed media which I am always nervous about but have come to the conclusion the only mistakes are learning curves lol.
