MMCC July Challenge #13 – Reminder

Hi! I’m here with another take on July’s MMCC image to remind you to play along with this month’s fun challenge over at MMCC!

I really having enjoyed using this graphic as inspiration. I made 4 more new cards for this challenge, but I posted them over here in order to keep this post not too long.

My card:

IMG_6343editedThe flower stamp is from Technique Tuesday’s “Carefree Cosmo” stamp set. The sentiment is from PTI’s Sentiment Splits stamp set.

To start, I used some dish soap bubbles, tinted with re-inkers, to create some different watercolor background papers. I chose one of these papers to use as the background panel for each of the cards in this post.

Here’s the piece that I chose for this first card:

IMG_6322editedI added some splotches of Hero Arts blue ink to the original soap-bubble bg paper with Laura Bassen’s famous “smooshing” technique, stamped the flower image in SU’s Night of Navy and then did some water-coloring and drawing in a variety of other SU blues. I’m going to play this over at SSS Monday’s I is for.…Ink!

IMG_6349edited Next, I double heat embossed the flower with clear embossing powder. Then, I added some white with a gel pen and framed it in blue cs. I really like how this card turned out.

I usually lean toward the CAS design style, so playing with mixed media is going to be challenging and fun.
