Mixed Media Card

I really love mixed media. I have finally figured out that you can't do a mixed media project all in one sitting. You have to add a layer, then add a layer, then add another layer. That's what I did with this card:

I'm linking this card up to the Paper Wings Productions April challenge to use INKS on a project. Well, I used a lot of inky things on this card. First, I poured -- yes, poured-- some different colors of mists on my cardstock. Some from October Afternoon, some from Studio Calico. I moved the card around to make the ink/paint run. So I had to wait overnight for that to dry. Then I stenciled on some arrows with lime green paint and drew some on with a white artist pen from Faber-Castell. I added some blue and pink ink inbetween the mist-blobs with a little sponge before I stenciled on the arrows. 

Then I stamped my piecharts (that stamp is from Paper Bakery Kits) and embellished my card. I really like how it turned out!! Practice makes mixed media perfect! LOL

Smile and Be Happy! :)

And it turned out gorgeous! And, actually the fact that you made it mixed media didn't go un-noticed! When I was looking at the card I was like, "Hey, she painted and really layered it up!" :)
