Crusading with snippets Mixed Media style ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I've another entry for challenges to share with you today. I've several snippets: stamped BGs, embossed card, another dress form die cut and very old textured paper that I decided to use for a challenge entry and here it is …
A normal A6 card for a change!
A lot of ink and paint were used and I went dark too!
The stamped part is a little darker than I intended but I love it!
A very different look for me but I am one happy bunny!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #330 Numbers
Country View Crafts Challenge Numbers
Quirky Crafts Challenge #20 Quirky Sewn with Love
I chose the August colour palette as it’s my favourite!
Stamping Sensations Challenge Sew Special
Unruly PaperArts ChallengeUniko Stamps Challenge Autumn/Fall I used fall colours so hope that is allowed
Coffee & Cream colour scheme I added a little pop of red – hope that’s allowed
All of these bits were in my boxes to be used up and when I was looking through it to see if I had anything I really wanted to use for the challenges I had a rare light bulb of how I could use them together and make my folders of images and backgrounds a little easier to close.
I added much more colour to the stamped snippet on the LHS because I wanted it to be richer colour wise. The brown and red snippets of card had been dry embossed with my TH sewing folder but I wanted to make the numbers pop more. Looking around I had my pot of
acrylic paint out and without even thinking about it I poured a little onto my
craft mat and used my pinkie to add it to the areas I wanted to pop.
Unfortunately I then reached up and brushed my hair out of the way and I got
told off for that one, lol, when we had company the next day lol! Thankfully most of the acrylic paint came out
when I washed my hair but I did have a nasty little knot for a few days so I
don’t recommend doing this. Americana
