The title of today’s challenge is Mixed Media.  I believe that can be a variety of things.  To me, it means different techniques, and layers.  So I have a couple of layers and a little different technique.



I will confess up front that I used the old group of pigment colors and not the new ones.  I thought they were the same just in different packaging.  Silly me!!!  Oh Well!  My bit of an odd “technique” could also be called “saving a mess!”  I used Shimmery White card stock and wet it thoroughly with an aqua painter.  I then sprinkled the pigment powder on the wet surface.  Unfortunately, I had been overzealous with the water!!  It was in little puddles.  So I took two different regular white card stock pieces that were handy and layer them, one at a time, on top of the mess.  When I picked them up, the results were very good.  This is the second piece I played over top of the mess.  It is a tad lighter, but I like the look I got.  So the moral of this story is…..don’t give up on your “messes” ! 🙂

After my background dried, I stamped the birds and smaller sailboat on it with Gray Granite Ink.  I also stamped the larger one in the same ink but on a scrap piece of paper.  I then used the matching die set to cut out the larger boat and the Ships’s wheel.

For more texture and layers, I added the Burlap Ribbon and the White Flax Ribbon in two strips at the bottom section of the card.  The stamped piece is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also added one of the metallic pearls to the center of the ship’s wheel.  I did not like the hole that is i the center showing.

Again , Thank you very much for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow.  The complete list of supplies is at the bottom of the post.
