Mixed media is in the bag.

Today it is my turn to host the mixed media challenge at Splitcoast.
Come check it out HERE.

This is the project I made for that challenge.

For this project I used:
 STAMPlorations Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds 
STAMPlorations Big Bloom Factory
and Deep Red Swallowtail
Sizzix Flower Vine Embossing folder
Apple Barrel copper, gold, black and white acrylic paints

I took a plastic grocery bag. I cut the bottom of it off and folded it until it was 8 layers thick. I ironed it between two pieces of typing paper. When it had melted and then cooled, I ran it through my cuttlebug.

 I put drops of the acrylic paint right onto the plastic. I rubbed it on with my fingers.
 Before the paint dried, I wiped some of it off to make the embossing stand out.

After the paint dried I stamped STAMPabilities mini mixed media backgrounds with black stazon ink. I glued the plastic to a piece of white cardstock and then matted it with black cardstock.

The flowers are STAMPability flowers that I added copper and white acrylic paint to. I have been practicing my hand lettering. The sentiments I hand lettered.

  1. What a stunning card MariLynn - love the way you used the plastic bag to make the background, and then how you coloured it.
