More Mixed Media Fun

I played yesterday and made a couple cards.  I was able to combine several challenges for this card.  I don't know who will receive this card but I do need to mail it to someone who would appreciate the humor in the card.

The first challenge that inspired me was Shopping Our Stash   The challenge was to make a snarky card.  I had just bought a new set of Dyan Reavely sentiment stamps which are all wonderfully snarky.  The "Stash" part of my card is the woman stamp.  I have had it for years and this is the first time I have used it.  She will get lots more use.

The second challenge is from House of Cards which is to use metallics.  I used some metallic embossing paste I had to add texture to my card.


The third challenge is from Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.  Their challenge this month is to get texty.  The background of my card is a dictionary page which has been gessoed and colored with gelatos.  The sentiment is also texty.


The image was stamped on a background I had made awhile ago with spray inks.  I also dyed the ribbon with the inks so that it kinda matched.  The image and the sentiment were heat embossed so they stand out.  I also did some paint spattering.  I was really into that yesterday.


I hope you enjoyed my snarky, metallic texty card.  Have a good day.
