The Mixed Media Card Challenge #1 - Touch of Nature!

Hello and welcome back to my blog, this my second post for the day, please click HERE to check my post for CSCC #5

Okay! finally the day has arrived :) I am so happy and excited to be on the Design Team of a brand new challenge The Mixed Media Card Challenge. Ah! can't tell u how happy I am... This challenge is the brain child of very talented and an expert in mixed media cards Shery Russ, who also owns a wonderful stamp company called STAMplorations  :) When Shery had posted a DT call for this challenge, I applied and to my surprise I was selected. Thank you so much Shery for bringing me on board :) I am excited coz there is so much to learn and this will bring out a whole new style to my cards, read about mixed media definition HERE and u will know what I am talking about.  So let's see what our first challenge is and what I created...
Touch of nature.... hmmmm.... for me nature revolves around the sun, so I had to incorporate the sun :) I have incorporated mixed media, yet kept my card CAS. So, here's my card...
To make this card, I first heat embossed this bird stamp set,then to make the sun I used a stencil and a modeling paste. I added some acrylic paint to color the modeling paste in yellow. Next I inked around the sun with distress ink and stamped the sentiment.
I am linking this to the following challenges -
1. CAS(E) this sketch #82
2. Catered Crop Summer lovin Recipe Swap
3. Crazy for CAS #47 - Stenciling
 
There is a lot more incredible inspiration by a versatile and uber talented team :) Please head over to our challenge blog to check out the details of the challenge and some more inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
