Mix-Ability Challenge: Fall colors

This week's Mix-Ability challenge is to create a fall-themed mixed media project. I had some fun with some of my new stamps from Impression Obsession, and a background I made using this week's Alcohol Marker Marbling tutorial!

Things tend to evolve as they sit on my desk, and this card is made from precut pieces and half-finished projects! I used 3 Touch Twin Markers to make my background:

 I stamped over the background, sponged, and mayyy have cleaned my brayer on it once as well. Nothing's safe. :)

The main image was watercolored and then cut using a technique I love to use to add dimension without adding layers. I'll work out a tutorial for that technique sometime soon!

Stamps I used: Leaf Collage, Grateful For You, CAC Oak, CAC Beauty Text

Come play!
Thanks for stopping by!

    would love to see a tutorial about this!

  2. Dina this is Lovely! There is so much warmth in the colors that I can feel the sun bouncing off of the leaves.. Fall is my favorite time of year and this card is a nice way to begin.. Welcome Fall!

  3. Is it wrong that I secretly giggle when reading your posts? Nothing's safe! LOL love this card and I'm intrigued by a budding new technique!

  4. Wow just absolutely love everything about this card! I love Fall, all the colors and how the cooler weather seems to bring family together! Thanks so much for sharing your gifts with all of us!

  5. I can see what you did to add dimension, Dina. Only because I have a die cut that does the same thing. This card is a beauty! You create awesome cards. :o)

  6. Beautiful, yet again! The background is 'Autumn misty' and the leaf colours are spot on. I love the way you've partially cut round the leaves to bring them forward. Genius!!

  7. You are truly gifted Dini and I enjoy seeing your creations which inspire me. Thank you!!!
