The Mixed Media Card Challenge

Thursday, August 25, 2016

Hey there lovelies!
It's been a long time since I played along with a challenge just for fun!
Here is one of my favorites, The Mixed Media Card Challenge!

A rainbow theme is always fun!
Who doesn't like pretty rainbows!?
Here is my take ;-)

I LOVE how this card turned out!
Actually I've made a similar card before, but I like this one better ;-)

I love this candle stamp from the Kathryn's Big Wishes set by STAMPlorations, it is so cute! 
The candle image was stamped on watercolor paper then water colored with rainbow colors. This little sentiment "make a " was stamped all over the front panel, and I tore the top then distressed the sides and bottom. 
I very lightly applied embossing paste randomly over a stencil also.

I die cut the wish sentiment from black, yellow, green, and blue cardstock, then they were mounted on each other slightly off so the colors are visible. The panel was sewn onto the red and white polka dot patterned paper. It was then matted on my base card, and a few gold stars were added.
