MIX14 Merci Beaucoup

This is my card for this week’s Mix-Ability (MIX14) Challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge this week is Modern Art. Use at least 2 coloring mediums to create a free flowing piece of art.

Here’s my card using acrylic paints, stamps from Impression Obsession, an embossing folder from Sizzix and inks from Clearsnap.

The background is painted (Gelli Printing… thanks Lydia!) with acrylic paints and then splattered with Smooch Glitz ( Goldrush).

I sponged the edges with Colorbox Chalk ink (Pumpkin Spice).

I stamped the sentiment (Impression Obsession CL427 Thank You) in Pumpkin Spice, die cut (Sizzix Fancy Labels #4), sponged the edges and then splattered with Smooch Glitz Goldrush.

I cut and then embossed (Sizzix Textured Impressions Dotted Squares Set) the red panel and then lightly skimmed a little white acrylic paint over the raised areas.

Assemble and add a couple pearls.
