The Mixed Media Card Challenge... and ME!

I have been having so much FUN playing with mixed media lately, that when I heard about the fabulous new Mixed Media Card Challenge with Shery Russ (owner of Stamplorations), I decided to try for the Design Team, and was over the moon when I was accepted!  

I'm so excited to be part of this AMAZING DT, and 
can't wait for you to join in the fun of the first monthly 
The Mixed Media Card Challenge on Tuesday July 1st.

So, you may be thinking... WHAT IS A MIXED MEDIA CARD?

Straight up, a mixed media card is a card that is created using a variety of mediums.
For the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog, it means using any of the following in addition to the usual stamps and inks:

  • Mediums that add texture. Some examples: fabric, stitching, embossing paste, texture gel, gel medium, modeling paste, gesso, textured paper, glitter, found objects
  • Mediums that give dimension. Some examples: die-cuts, chipboard, embossing powders, epoxy/thick stickers, embellishments, found objects
  • Mediums that allow you to use (and even combine) different techniques. Some examples: watercolor, pastels, alcohol inks, markers, chalks, acrylic paints, oils, crayons
Even using various tools and supplies is okay. Some examples: die-cutting machine (manual or electronic), monoprinting tools (Gelli plate), embossing folders, punches, dies, stencils, templates.
Basically, a card that has stamps and inks PLUS at least any two of the above (embossing paste and alcohol inks, for example) is a mixed media card in our book :o)
