You are funky – MMCC #23

Hello there lovelies and happy Sunday!!! I stumbled upon the current The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog´s April challenge and I immediately wanted to create a card for it. I´m joining for the very first time (I think) OR my last submission goes back such a long time, that I cannot even remember… a shame actually. But what can you do – my daily life keeps me very busy and I hardly ever find the time to join in on challenges. Well, at least until today/for now. I´m joining in on the  mixedmediamc #23 challenge with the following card:

Here is how I interpreted the challenge:

Sanna LippertI first cut a piece of watercolor paper that I had colored with Brusho. Next I stamped with a Birgit Koopsen star stamp set onto the background. After that I added strips of clear double sided adhesive tape (treated with microfine glitter) onto the background, then some die cut elements and alphas. I hand draw tiny dots, stars and triangles onto to background. Next I stamped the eyeglasses onto the brushoed paper, added faux stitching with a thick pen, applied silver texture paste thru a stencil, adhered the die cut circle and colored it with acrylic pen, added the puffy silver dots, the DIY resin flowers, the die cut sentiment and word stickers. The Bursho toned piece is adhered with 3D foam which makes it dimensional. Also the roses are very much dimensional as is the paste. So I hope this card fills the requirements :).

Here is a detail shot for a second look (here you can better see the dimensionality):

Sanna LippertI enjoy using strong colors so much at the moment – they immediately make me feel better and smile!!!

Thanks for dropping by <3 !
xxx, Sanna
