Mixed Media Challenge

Monday, September 21, 2015

Hello there!
I found this fun challenge, Mixed Media Card Challenge, and of course I had to play along!
I love mixed media, there's so much fun packed into on one canvas! I am just a wanna-be, actually don't know anything about it. *hee hee* 

This month's theme is friendship.
And here is what I came up with...

I have been still experimenting with my photo shoots... Trying different spots in the house, different backgrounds, etc... I am not crazy about that turquoise background, what do you think? It's my mat on the desk...

So I have this coffee set from Your Next Stamp that I had been dying to play with! 
The set has many cute sentiments and one of them says "coffee + friends = the perfect blend". I die cut coffee and friends instead of using the stamp. "plus" was made with the Rotary Alphabet Stamp and Early Espresso Emboss Powder, then stained with the Crumb Cake Ink on watercolor paper.

I also heat embossed part of the sentiment. Layered on this perfect patterned paper from the This and That DSP (those circles look like coffee rings, and the design itself is so mixed media!) and this crinkled piece of the Crumb Cake cardstock. 

This was so much fun to make :-)
I can't wait for the next challenge! ;-D
