Just believe – MMCC January challenge

Hello there! Time to share some extra inspiration for the Mixed Media Card Challenge blogs January challenge with you. This month you are requested to create a CARD with the theme beginnings and as an optional element you should use sequins.

MMCCHere is the card I created:

Sanna LippertAnd this is what I did:

Sanna Lippert I first added spray ink (green, pink and yellow by Tattered Angels) onto a piece of watercolor paper and let it dry.

Sanna Lippert Next I took a The Crafters Workshop stencil and applied Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the background. I used green, pink and orange ink.

Sanna Lippert After that I took the ink covered stencil, added some water spray onto it an then pressed the residue ink onto a second piece of watercolor paper.

Sanna Lippert While the second piece was drying, I took the first inked and stenciled piece and started to punch out stars with various sized star punches.

Sanna Lippert After the second surface was dry, I placed another The Crafter´s Workshop stencil over it and applied some Imagine Crafts Iridescent Turquoise texture paste thru the stencil onto the background.

Sanna Lippert This is how the pattern looks like after removing the stencil.

Sanna Lippert When the paste was dry I adhered the punched stars and some sequins with paper glue onto the surface and then added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze over the surface.

Sanna Lippert Next all I needed to do was to stamp a sentiment. I chose to use a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz set called Crazy Talk. I used a black Distress Ink for stamping.

Sanna Lippert Finally I also added some random wood veneer pieces here and there for addtional detail and also added some black pen outlining to the sentiment and the stars to make them stand out more from the background.

I hope you will find time to join in on this months challenge with us! I love the MMCC blog´s challenges as you have lots of creative freedom in what way use decide to use the theme and optional elements. As long as it is a mixed media card, you are good to go! Have fun!

See you at MMCC,
xxx, Sanna
