Vacation card - LOTV Designer Collective

Good day everyone,

I have a card to share with you today that I created as part of 
the Design Collective Team  for Lili of the Valley


I used papers from Graphic 45, Renaissance Collection
Distressed the edges and inked with Walnut Stain and Gesso


This stamp is called Lazy Afternoon, I stamped the image twice
and paper-pieced the newspaper to add a bit of dimension
Imaged is colored with Copics, sorry I forgot to mark down the colors used


I used lots of different embellishments cut out of paper,
also wood, film strip and metal charm

Good day everyone,

New challenge today at Simply Magnolia, our theme is Fun in the Sun

I created a tag as my Dt creation which lots of Mix Media, I admit I'm hooked 


I cut out my tag on chipboard, It's Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die
I applied White Crakle texture paste with my stencils
For the color I used Glimmer mist in Coral Reef and Caribean blue
I also inked with Picked Raspberry distress ink


This little cutie is Hippie Tilda from the new Boho Collection

What I love about Mix Media is that you can use all kinds
of embellishments, add white Gesso then you can apply any color
of finish.  My metal heart was red, bike was silver and the metal flower 
was in a brass finish.
