Mix-Ability - Opposites Attract!

It's my turn to host the Mix-Ability challenge this week - if you enjoy mixing it up a little and experimenting with coloring mediums, come over and play along with us! We post every week, but you can pick any challenge that inspires you.

I have this amazing color wheel for reference on my desk, and I have been using it quite a bit when I choose beads for jewelry pieces -it's got some really handy pointers in the center for eye-catching combinations. For the challenge, we're pairing up complementary colors, which are just colors that appear opposite each other on the color wheel. 

I pulled out some old favorite stamps from my collection, these vintage art supplies (Calligraphy Pen 2, Liner Brushes, and Paint Tubes) and stamped them in black, then set up some masks for my coloring. These are some of my favorite sets from A Colorful Life Designs - they're the Marvelous Masks, and they come in a variety of shapes, with the stencils and cut-out mask pieces in the set. I used the Rectangles above, and the Banners on the other 2 cards.

The inks I used are Versafine Clair - I love this line! They layered very nicely too. The splatters were done with QoR watercolor, and a little diluted white acrylic paint.

Those sentiments - aren't they great? This is a set by Inky Antics that every good crafter needs. Tell them I sent ya!

I hope you're having a great week - I'm so ready for Friday!
Thanks for stopping by!
