Mixed Media


There are so many different colouring mediums available to us in this creative world it is so much fun exploring....especially when it comes to colouring this fabulous Mixed Media image by Penny Black.

I love my Chalks/Pastels and Prismacolor Pencils but just lately I have been playing with some of the Tsukineko Memento Markers- and am LOVING them!

I have used the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine to cut the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Nestabilities® and Decorative Labels Eight Nestabilities.  The Decorative Labels Eight has been sanded around the edges to add the impression of another layer - I love this effect!

The wonderful Swirls Finesse is by Want2ScrapFinishing off with some Seam Binding and a recycled vintage button.

This card is for the following challenges:
