I love the flowers in the Sketched Blooms set! They are so fun to color! I decided to go a little mixed media for my card. I started with white cardstock and sponged red ink randomly and then smeared on some white acrylic paint.  I die cut the Spotted Cutting Plate from pink cardstock and then sponged Memento Lady Bug and Memento Toffee Crunch ink over it … I pretty much covered the pink. Ha! The vase (Various Vases) was die cut from white cardstock and I added a criss cross pattern with a red marker and then doodled lines with a Inkssentials white pen. I added some little white splatters to everything. My main image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with markers (with a few more white paint splatters). I added a doodled border around my image with a fine black pen before I assembled my card.

Love Art Z Becky Brown Bag

This is my project for this week’s Mix-Ability Challenge (MIX61) on Splitcoast.

I used my white purse from Z Becky Brown for my project, a Z Becky Brown Canvas Insert (oooh I love them for painting!) and Inking of You from Tiddly Inks.

Here is my decorated Z Becky Brown Canvas Insert. The background was made with a round sponge brush and acrylic paint (Martha Stewart Purple Yam, mixing with Wedding Cake to get 3 different shades of purple). I colored the image with Touch Twin markers (I changed out the ink pen in the image and made the end into a paint brush). The love die cut is from Stampin’ Up!
