Mixed Media Card Challenge... Summer with Burlap

Time for the next Mixed Media Card Challenge, and I'm on a roll with my Summer sunshine. Created using Heidi Swapp 12x12 Sunshine Stencil and Distress Inks Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, and Spiced Marmalade, and this very summery Avery Elle Kombi Campervan, fussy cut from Distress Ink Peacock Feathers on watercolour paper, with a-very funky Avery Elle sentiment. The centre of the sun was created using a strip of burlap, folded in half and then twisted and rolled into a circle, which is glued onto a cardstock circle base. The burlap was then coloured using Momento Luxe ink in Dandelion.

I hope you take the opportunity to have a play with Mixed Media, I'd LOVE to see your creations!  In case you're wondering what qualifies as a Mixed Media Card, I have posted details here, and they can be found on The Mixed Media Card Challenge blog
