Mixed Media with Stampin' Up! Summer Silhouettes

After taking the Stenciled class I've really become intrigued with mixed media.  I am not a complicated stamper, so I wasn't sure if it was something that would really fit in with my stamping. I decided to try some of the Mix-Ability challenges over on Splitcoast.  I started with the first one and will work my way through them as I have time.  I hope to learn a little something along with way.  :)   For this one we had to use a matte finish and a shiny finish.  I used gesso (tinted Coastal Cabana) and embossing powder.  

I used my Aquapainter to make the ombre tag.  I am really enjoying using that and watercolor paper so much now!   I wanted to use a tag to play along at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.   :)   

It was so pretty out today, so we took a little trip to the park.  :)  


  1. Your card is beautiful that is such a pretty colour

  2. Go to the head of,the class with this one! Love it!

  3. Part of the reason I follow your blog is that our styles are so similar. I love this card and I've not been a fan of mixed media because it seems to me that people put too much "stuff" on them. This is awesome! I wouldn't hesitate to gift this to someone -- consider yourself an enabler. I'm going to have to try my hand at this as soon as I can get some of the products I need. I adore the color -- BEAUTIFUL! Laila looks so cute in pink and I have a feeling she loves being out of doors and just doing something -- such a cutie!

  4. So, so pretty! I will have to give this a try. It's been a while since I pulled out the watercolor paper.

  5. Gorgeous card Rita, so very pretty and feminine.
    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
