Mixed Media Card Challenge – Celebration

It’s December!  Wow!  And my celebration for the challenge – Christmas of course 🙂  and I’ve managed to use the optional element too!

The challenges run from the 1st to the 25th of each month, with the winners announced on the last day of the month.  To play along, simply create a mixed media card and enter it at the Mixed Media Card Challenge.  Be sure to check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team!  So much inspiration!

New to mixed media?  Simply combine two or more mediums on your card.  So many choices: watercolor, gesso, acrylics, distress inks, pencils, crayons, Copics, other inks and on and on…

Pretty simple design…I’ve stamped some elements from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements set in gray archival ink.  Then the ARTplorations Christmas Trees stencil was heat embossed in white.  Next I mixed up some white acrylic paint with water and splattered it all over the card to create a snowy effect.  The sentiment has been stamped on some vellum and for a pop of color…a Tim Holtz Mirrored Star that’s been colored with alcohol ink.
Back soon with more my sweet friends…
