The Mixed Media Card Challenge #28 – October – Black and Purple

Challenge Badge

Hi! I’m here with a card for The Mixed Media Card Challenge for October:

 

Here’s my card inspired by the hymn “His Eye is on the Sparrow”

Slide002I watercolored with a variety of purples onto a watercolor paper background and then stenciled on chevrons with the ARTplorations Stencil Chevron Crazy.

I stamped with STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2 onto some lavender cardstock, sponged on some dark purple and fussy cut the birds out.

Slide03

I dry embossed the panel and then added some glitter embossing paste with the ARTplorations Stencil Retro Circles.

Slide04

Lastly I attached the panel to a white frame, the lavender card base and attached the sentiment.

I made 4 of these cards for a private challenge that I’m part of. The theme for the challenge was “Reflections”.

Slide001I had a lot of fun making these cards! Make sure you stop by The MMCC blog and check out my teammates superb creations!

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
Melissa
