Mixed Media

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a card I made using mixed media. This is always fun for me. At Joan's Touch this week we are to use stencils, lots of colors of ink and textures. My good enabler friend ( I seem to have several of those! ) showed me her Crayola air brush system and let me play with it. Well, of course I had to get one for myself! LOL! I used it doing the background. I used a fern and dot stencils with green and brown markers on yellow card stock.

To make the glittery flowers I used a stencil with white stencil paste. I colored over the flowers, but I was not liking the look, so I ended up using the wonderful velvet glitters from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I made the blue flower by using Tim Holtz's Tattered Flowers die, cut from cardboard. I inked the flower by rubbing on Inka Gold inks.

The bluebird is a chipboard piece I had and I also rubbed Inka Gold colors on it.  I enjoyed using the chipboard and I ought to use it more often!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

This is really arty! Love the feathers behind that pretty bird. I like the shimmer of the birds colours.
The stencils look great...I only own a couple and haven't used them yet! Hangs head in shame!!!
