Mixed Media Mojo Springtime Fun!

Happy Spring time!  This month's challenge over at MIXED MEDIA MOJO is a theme of SPRINGTIME and the twist is to use Watercolors!

This is a journal spread I had made in my journal and posted to the MMM blog today!


The background is using Dylusions Sprays with water (sort of watercoloring), lots of Unity Stamps in there as well.  The flowers are from Unity Stamp Co and created with Washi Tape.  

I take a square piece of cardstock in whatever size I want.  Cover it with different washi tapes and tuck the pieces around the back.  Here is an example of what it looks like:

 Before I tucked all the pieces around back

All neatly tucked which creates a cool new paper!

Once I have this piece I would just stamp the image I want, in this case the tulips on the washi tape paper and then just cut them out.  





Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to come and play along in our current challenge which ends this Thursday night!

Mixed Media Card Challenge

It's February and time for some new challenges!  First up is the new challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenges!  This month the theme is Trees and the optional element are birds.




Here is my card using stamps from Unity Stamp Co except the bird and I'm not sure where he is from.

It started with making gelli prints on deli paper:
Doesn't it look so pretty on the plate?


I pulled a few prints the one on the left being the first one



I picked one of the prints and glued it to a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock since it's a nice weight.  Stamped the tree in Archival ink gray.  Added a script word stamp (I think from Unity). Stamped the bird and cut him out.  Added some Unity words at the end.





Thanks so much for stopping by!
