This week's Mix-Ability challenge is to use metallics, which seem to be pretty trendy this year!
My desk has been buried this week in kit pieces and class prep for the Great Yosemite Stamp Escape, but I shoved enough aside to make space for this card.
I created my background using Color Burst by Ken Oliver Crafts and a home-made spray also created with the product. I prefer a muted palette and these powders are rainbow vivid, so I toned them down by making a brown mixture to spray into them instead of clear water... I started with a little red and green, then added and tweaked until I got the right tone.
Some texture was added to the background using stencils and drywall tape. When it was dry, I stamped the poppy and brushed bleach over the image... that was magical.There's a sprinkling of chunky gold EP over the card, and an inlaid die cut word painted with gold Lumiere paint to fulfill the challenge for this week. So much fun!
