Three Surfaces

I made 2 cards for this week's Mix-Ability challenge, and since both feature stamps from Crafter's Companion, I thought I'd share them together! Really that's the only thing they have in common, besides meeting the challenge requirements... hee!!

The challenge this week is to incorporate 3 different surfaces on our projects. For my first card I used one of my craft sheets as a base (these protect my desk when I work, and collect extra ink and paint, etc.). The stamped flowers (Christmas Rose set) are from Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion range and are painted with acrylic paints. My 3 surfaces are cardstock, vellum, and metal. The sentiment is from Flourishes.

For the second card my 3 surfaces are textured cardstock, matboard and wood... I used a 2-inch Art Square from Inchie Arts for a spotlight effect, coloring with Touch Twin Markers. The colors I used are below. HERE is a link to the image - so cute!

The wooden flower button came from Craftpon's Etsy store, and the sentiment is from Penny Black. The clouds were 'painted' using ink from the Touch markers, blended with a waterbrush that I have filled with rubbing alcohol.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love the flower painted with Acrylics, beautiful!

  2. Both of your cards are so beautiful and full of details. Thank you for sharing all of them! You did an amazing job!

  3. Love the bear....
    I have to know what colour you used to paint those clouds, because that is an idea I can put to good use since I'm terrible at drawing...

  4. Fabulous style and techniques - thanks for sharing the colors, too!
