You make me happy – MMCC November challenge reveal

Hello everyone and happy November!!! Gosh, where has the time gone??!! I have not even started on my Xmas cards yet and time is starting to run out..eeekk! BUT first things first. Let´s start by sharing the November Mixed Media Card Challenge with you:

This time the theme is FAMILY and as an optional element you are asked to use ARROWS. Now there are various possibilities to approach this theme. You could create a card for Thanksgiving, for example.

 I have used a more general theme. It is, in a way, a thank you card, I think. There is always that special someone in the family who can brighten up ones day, no matter how bad it has been until then. Well, this is the kind of card I´d like to give that special person to tell them how much I appreciate them being there for me.

And this is how I created the card:

I first wiped some Distress Stain (pink & purple) onto a working surface and then pressed a piece of relatively thick watercolor paper over the ink/color. Then I let the paper dry properly.

Next I took a 3rd Eye (sadly, the store has closed their doors, but you will find a stamp or two still sold HERE…) arrow stamp and stamped and arrow pattern with black ink over the „faux watercolor“ area.

After that I took some colored texture spray (by Imagine Crafts) and added droplets of white and black over the stamped area. This needs to dry a while.

While the droplets were drying I stamped a sentiment (stamp by Kaisercraft) and fussy cut it. I also used a nice feather (a present by my lovely scrappy friend Lizzy <3) to go behind the sentiment.

Finally I adhered everything, outlined the card with a black pen and added some glitter glue onto the arrows for additional detail. Fun and easy!

So now is your turn – hope you like this months theme and join us for another fun MMCC challenge over HERE!

xxx, Sanna
