Mixed Media Color Challenge 6 chose two pinks and grey for our challenge this week. It was more difficult than I thought. Mostly b/c I don’t have different Media besides stamp pads in these colors. What to do, what to do.
Hmmm…I have some very old liquid radiant pearls and just a tiny bit left of light pink I added some rubbing alcohol to the container and proceeded to stipple brush over my DOTS stencil from MFT. I did this on the cream colored base and also on the pink layer. it kind of looks like mini star fish, don’t ya think? Necessity is the mother of invention.
I wanted to use white stencil paste with my American Traditions sea shell stencil and color them but when I got up this a.m. I see I used translucent instead of the white…but hey, I kind of like the effect. I took my SU markers and painted the translucent shells with the light pink and dark pink required. Layered them up with both those colors and the grey and…hmmmm…I really like the way it turned out.

It’s been a long time since I played with my House Mouse stamps. And I made two cards this week with House Mousies.
The dots are gelatos with a stencil. Using MFT fishtail stax dies, Pearl pen for the pearl dots, and pleated dotted washi tape for abstract grass. MFT wood grain fence die and Simon Says clouds. The wings on the dragon fly are two layers and they have Clear Star pen on them for shine. All images colored with Kohinoor and gamsol. Thanks for looking.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM. had it in my head I wanted to make an ice cream card before summer is over and then Pretty Pink Posh threw out a "make a card in ten minutes challenge" and this is what I quickly came up with. I thought the colors were so pretty. I made it with 4 seconds to spare. WHEW! I didn’t intend for the scalloped edge but in my rush I scored my cardstock in the wrong place and the quick fix was to use my SU scallop punch. I was happy for the mistake b/c I love the little scallop on the greeting part of the card. (((so glad I happened on Pretty Pink Posh’s birthday party. thanks.
