It is my turn to host the MIX-Ability challenge on SCS. I was thinking it would be fun to make cards with a "Ransom Note" feeling. You know, the kind where the person cuts out words or letters from other print media, like magazines, newspapers or books to compose the ransom note.
To achieve that look, I used 5 different STAMPlorations sets.
I used: Blossom like a butterfly
I made the background with my gel plate. I used shades of blue acrylic paint. I used a curled up piece of paper and corrugated cardboard to make the marks on that first print. When that print dried, I put fall colors of acrylic paint on my plate with a crumpled up piece of paper. I then put ARTplorations stencil called: Autumn Falling.
After I puled that print I filled in some space on the leaves that didn't completely print with colored pencils and watercolor paint. I also doodled some dots with a white gel pen. I think the swirls with the leaves makes it look like they are blowing in the wind.
