Hi there, lovelies!!! I just love these challenges at The Mixed Media Card Challenge blog.. and by the amount of submissions we get every month, you do too :)!!! That makes us very happy, so keep ´em coming :)!! It´s time to share another inspirational card that is based on this months challenge theme and colours. Hope you get inspired and join us on this fun challenge!
Like on my previous card, I´ve played with the gorgeous metal sheets by Add a Little Dazzle again. Here is what I did with them:
I used a piece of silver colored sheet and run that thru my Big Shot (this flower patterned dry embossing folder is by Cuttlebug). Next I added some alcohol inks over the sheet (in reddish tones) and finally wiped over the embossed areas with a brown Archival Ink. That way the alcohol ink vanished from those areas and is replaced by the brown tone of the ink. It makes the pattern look more interesting.
…and this is what my card looks like. I´ve used this piece both on my original card and on this second one and I´ve still got plenty to play with. For this card I fussy cut the metal sheet into a leaf form and glued it down on it´s place. On the background there is a toned (acrylic paint) struckture paste in there. I´ve applied it onto the background thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil. Then just random color splatters here and there and a sentiment and some doodling around the edges. The cute little birdie is by Wycinanka.
Wishing you a lovely day and hope to see you join in with us on this lovely September challenge. There is a fabulous prize waiting for one lucky winner – so make sure you go by the rules to be in for the win :).

Absolutely gorgeous Sanna. LOVE how you’ve embossed the metal and added the two inks to give it so much texture and depth. Love the bright yellow leaves in the background and your lacy bird is beautiful! Loll xx
