I have a card to share with you for this week's Mix-ABILITY challenge. The challenge that Kyra gave us was to use pebbles and sprays to make a unique background. My card started as white cardstock. I knew I wanted some color, plus I knew I needed more than just the sprays to make it a mixed media card. So I started with a piece of white cardstock and I ink spray smashed it with markers.
Now I think river rock would have been good to use for this technique, but all I had was gravel from my driveway. I washed the gravel and dried it and then placed it on the colorful background. I sprayed over the gravel with gold shimmer spray.
If you look closely at this photo you can see the areas that don't have gold spray where the rocks were.
Well, after I used just the gold spray this is what I got.
I absolutely loved how this looks.
The technique featured this week on SCS was using rolled flower dies to make roses. I made some roses earlier this week and I knew I wanted to use it on my card. As pretty as the second sheet is, the roses didn't look as pretty with it, so I used the lighter first sheet for my card.
I stamped the sentiment with black stazon ink.
The other result of this technique? I have some really pretty gold rocks.
