The Mixed Media Card Challenge

Hi! Thank you for spending some of your time to visit me. 🙂 I’m very happy to be here today with a reminder for The Mixed Media Card Challenge’s Challenge #25 – July – Sparkle.

Here’s my card: IMG_8151edited

First, I cut strips (lots) of Avery White Removable Multipurpose Labels.

Avery Self-Adhesive Removable Laser Id Labels, White, 8.5 x 11 inches, 25 per Pack (6465)

I used the strips to mask off the water color paper, making my own stencil of sorts, in a grid-square pattern.

I made sure that the label strips were securely adhered to the paper

and then water colored the squares.

After the paint dried a bit, I removed the label/tape.

  I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment then added Stickles in 3 colors, along with Smooch Spritz and some gems.

I trimmed the panel and adhered it to the green card base.

  1. So neat and clever Melissa, I thought it was a stencil you’d used but even more fabulous you’ve taped the grid pattern ‘by hand’! Absolutely wonderful colour combo, loving the added splatters and the gorgeous butterfly from Uniko makes a perfect focal point. Thanks for playing along with us at Uniko. Sarah
