This week's mixability challenge on splitcoaststampers.com is to make a summer or graduation card with sparkle and use at least 2 mediums. You might look at my card and wonder where my summer is. Well.... I started by thinking summer... hot... sun... sun shining through clouds... plus I grew up in Arizona where the summer thunderstorms were a special treat. A break in the heat. Especially since we didn't have any air conditioning. I ink(markers) spray smashed the background. I stamped the clouds and painted them with white acrylic paint. I used a black ink pen to outline the clouds after I painted them I added pencil and acrylic paint to the raindrops. on the little highlights of the raindrops I added a drop of glue and glitter. I also sprayed the cloud panel with silver shimmer spray.
I have been wanting to put more of a personal touch with my mixed media projects by handwriting my quotes. I hand wrote the quote on the bottom of the easel for this card. It says. "Your kindness is like the sun shining through the clouds on even the darkest day."
