Lydia is hosting this week's Mix-Ability challenge over at Splitcoast, and in true mixed media fashion the challenge is to use 4 different mediums on our projects. Here's my card:
I pulled some of my overseas craft stash out of our storage unit to sort through and purge, so you can imagine the turmoil that is Narnia this week, but in reorganizing I found this sheet of Peel-Off stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
|Flowers in Frames 3|
The flowers and leaves were colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Akashiya Sai markers, just blending the colors from dark to light while the ink was wet. I'm working on a video and comparison post, so be looking for that. There is a difference in the brush size, if that matters to those of you who are considering a purchase... the Sai markers do have a larger brush. Both, though, are capable of incredibly fine lines, and they seem to play well together too.
To add finer details to the orchids, I used a brown Micron pen and dotted towards the center of each flower. I used Impression Obsession dies to accent the focal panel, and a sentiment from my Warm Fuzzies clear set. The final risky step was to remove the sticker - I wasn't sure how 'stuck' it was, so I was hesitant to pull it away, but it came up with no tearing, and I love the effect.
For those who are waiting for more items to be posted to my sale page... it's going much slower than I thought! I'm going to completely revamp my unmounted stamp storage, so I'm stuck right there for the moment, waiting for supplies. Instead of posting too many more individual items, I'm going to start filling up Priority boxes for a flat rate, so be looking for those if you're interested. They will be packed FULL and I promise you will not be disappointed in the contents! Stamps, dies, embossing folders, cardstock, DP, vellum, ribbon, embellishments, and more.
I'll keep you posted!
