Mixed Media Card Challenge

Hi there!
I am playing along with the Mixed Media Card Challenge today!

Here is my family card...

The first thing that came to my head was "family tree", so that is exactly what I made!

I made my tree with the Core'dination Core Color Cardstock. This was my very first time using them, and oh my! I am loving the distressed look you can make so very easily! 
Each heart on the tree represents my family member, my very handsome husband, our 4 beautiful children, and myself. 

Of course I had to water color my background, I am totally addicted!
I water colored it with Coastal Cabana, stamped the measuring tape background stamp lightly with Versamark then heat embossed with the Early Espresso emboss powder. 

I heat embossed "family" and "love" with this little alphabet stamp set from Target's $1 shelf, cut them around the rectangles, water colored with Early Espresso. 
Those little pocket watch die cut and key trinket are from Japan. My sister sent me some washi tape and stickers a few years back, and now that I've met mixed media, they make the perfect embellishments!

I cannot get enough of mixed media, it tickles my arty side!
I am still just a wanna-be, self taught by pinterest *Ha Ha Ha*
When I search mixed media on pinterest, I cannot stop and lose my sleep! LOL
