Mini Marvels - Mixed Media

As the title suggests today's project is a mixed media mini canvas inspired by A Vintage Journey Mini Marvels Challenge. I've had this mini canvas (2.5" x 3.5") in my stash for so long and this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

The background (which is now hidden) was created with lots of layers of pretty papers, gesso, texture paste and stencils. I added color with Prima color bloom sprays and Prima rose gold acrylic paint. I adhered the flowers, leaves and embellishments and lastly added a sentiment. 

I'm also linking this to Stamplorations Mixed Media Challenge

Thanks so much for visiting.

Christmas Challenge 1

Hello and a very quick post to share two cards I made a few weeks ago.  The challenge at Where Creativity Meets C9 is Christmas.  I don't have any Concord & 9th Christmas stamps (yet) but I pulled out all the stamps sets I have and started playing:

The background was created using the Stripe Builder stamp set, black on red card stock. Using a gold and black pen I added a few more stripes.
For the wreath I used the Painted Thank You stamp set.

See my next post for my second card.

Christmas Challenge 2

And here is my second card for the same challenge Where Creativity Meets C9 Christmas Challenge.

I used the same stamps sets (Stripe Builder and Painted Thank You) for this card.  I really had fun creating these and ended making a bunch of different cards.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
