Back to Kindergarten with Lydia
Happy Monday, everyone! It's been a little wet in our neck of the woods and yesterday we saw a few rays of sunshine in between rain showers. I love those types of spring days. It put me in the mood to do some cleaning and crafting, so I went to my studio and did both!
This card today is an accomplishment for me. I admit that I might have flunked this assignment in class if I had to do it under pressure, but with some time and a few searches on the internet and the posting of the challenge it is supporting where you can find THREE awesome videos, I finally made it work.
It's the Mix-Ability challenge hosted this week by Lydia bringing us back to the basics of our inner artists. Check it out on the Splitcoaststampers forum for Fridays under Mix-Ability, MIX65: Back to Kindergarten.
After a few trials with watercolor mediums, yes I tried three, I switched to Ranger Distress Inks for the color on this card. I'm not going to tell you what the challenge is you'll just have to go check it out at the forum. I'm not even going to give it away in my details below. :)
Try it on your next project and link it up to the challenge thread anytime.
Stamps: Butterfly Tune and Loving Messages Stamps (Stampendous)
Paper: White (Neenah), Gray charcoal paper (Strathmore)
