Hello – October Mixed Media Card Challenge reveal

Hello there, everyone! Another new month, another new challenge!!! This month we want to see cards created with BLACK & ORANGE and you can use GLITTER as an additional element!

I could have easily created a Halloween themed card – after all it is an October challenge!!! Or even a Thanksgiving card would have been suitable for these colors, but I went with a more general theme. Here is what my card looks like:

I´ve used orange ink to ink the background, then added a layer of glitter paste and black acrylic paint thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil over the inked area. After that I cut the piece into a right size and when the glitter paste was dry, I outlined the glitter petals with a black pen. That way they stand out more from the background.

Next I added some black Glimmer Glaze droplets and glued the background onto a white card base. After that I added a ribbon and some flowers and stamped and fussy cut the sentiment.

So nothing really THAT fancy going on here, but nevertheless lots of various media and techniques going on. And still easy to do.

I hope you will find some time to join in with us at the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog!!! I´d love to see what you come up with!! For further details, read the RULES over at the MMCC blog (right side bar) and while you are there, get inspired by the fabulous cards my team colleagues have created!!!!

Happy October and happy crafting!!!
