Paper craft project no. 270: Thanks mixed media card

2014-09-22 Thanks mixed media card

Short and sweet post today (because I’m [still] dealing with nasty allergies, sorely lacking sleep, and neck-deep with work I gotta finish). My card is for The Mixed Media Card Challenge – there’s 3 more days left to play and create an autumn-inspired mixed media card. (Click here for our definition of a mixed media card.) We have Add A Little Dazzle sponsoring us this month and I just love their craft metal sheets! If you create an autumn-inspired mixed media card with the optional element (metal or leaves or both), you get a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to use towards products in the AALD Boutique.

The low-down on my card: on a white card stock panel, I stamped the sunflower (Bloom Sketches) in VersaMark watermark ink, applied PanPastel Colors all over (magenta, magenta extra dark, orange, and yellow ochre), inked the edges with pomegranate Mix’d Media Inx Chox, added ribbon from Pink Paislee, made a diecut border from chocolate brown craft metal sheet, stamped the sentiment (Boxed Blooms & Bold Sentiments), decorated the panel with black sticker stitches (SRM Stickers), and then finished with a lovely white lace 4″ round doily (SRM Stickers). I gotta say that the ribbon and the doily are not me at all. Had to channel my inner Nonni for this one ;o)

Hooking up my card to the following fun challenges: Creatalicious Challenge #67 – Flower Power; Stempelgarten Challenge #29 – Autumn; and The Corrosive Challenge #208 – Autumn/Fall.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great week!
