Such A Drizzling Challenge

Happy Friday all! Today I've got a mixed media card just to say hello! It's more than just a card it's a challenge day card!

I'm hosting the Mix-Ability forum starting today, and I decided I'd let the weather get the better of me. It's drizzling rain in our part of the world instead of snowing so we will drizzle something onto a background for the challenge!

For my card, I did two drizzles! I made a stencil with hot glue drizzled onto a craft mat and then sprayed my stamped background paper with instant coffee. The second drizzle was a silver glue stick drizzled as a border on the card background.

I hope you'll come and join us in the Mix-Ability forum at Splitcoaststampers!

One more thing before we move on to supplies and instructions. All this week there are Stampendous projects using the new 6 x 6 stamps. Check out the posts here, here and here.

Supplies: I provide some product links that are through my Amazon Affiliate, and that means when clicked and purchased in the same session a few pennies are sent my way at no cost to you.

It's what I do! I'm a maker who receives goodies for design team work, but I wouldn't do it if I didn't already like the products I receive, so comments I make are what I mean and not just because I received them to make my project. To see a list of these companies just scroll to the bottom of my blog under FTC Declaration.
