The Mixed Media Card Challenge #1 – a touch of nature

Hello lovelies!! Remember the new mixed media card challenge site I was lucky to join? Well, it is time for the first challenge reveal over there today!!!

This challenge can be interpreted quite freely, just make sure you follow the challenge rules (you can also find these rules on the right sidebar of the site):

1. Create a mixed media CARD based on the theme, with or without the optional element.
2. For this challenge only, you may create a mixed media TAG based on the theme.
3. Display the challenge graphic on your blog post and link back to this challenge post.
4. You may enter as many times as you want, as long as each entry is different.
5. You may combine a maximum of 7 challenges (6 other challenges plus ours).
6. Submit your projects by July 25, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT -700).
7. We’ll announce the winner and favorites on July 31.

This was my take for the challenge reveal:

I used a stencil to first create a faux watercolour image with it (Distress Inks applied over the stencil, then some water and finally press the image onto paper). After that I applied a layer of molding paste over the stencil (same one). Next I stamped the tag, did some outlining and added the color splatters and the wooden embellishments. After that I just took a twig (from my garden), added some twine around it and glued it down onto the card. The leaves are fussy cut from a residue piece of paper.

I am really excited about this first challenge – you just need to go and check out the cards my team colleagues created!!! So, so very inspiring!!!! Loving this challenge site already ♡ …

Hope to see lots of you join in on this challenge, you have time until the 25th of July!!!
See you there,
xoxo, Sanna
