June Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge

It is already June and it is time for a new Mixed Media Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.  This month your mixed media creation must include glitter.

I decided to make a birthday card for this challenge.  Glitter is always a wonderful accessory for a birthday card.  My card is a six inch square card.  The bicycle is a sticker and the sentiment is stamped.  The ribbon was died with the pistachio oxide ink.

Once again I got out my distress oxide inks and played with them.  I used the pink, pistachio and fossilized amber for my ink colors.  The bike and sentiment background only use the pink and pistachio inks.  The three colors were used in the main background paper.

I used a dark grey for the mat colors.  Grey is a softer color to use rather than black.

For my glitter, I added a Sparkle embossing paste through a circle stencil.  A happy accident happened as it dried.  The embossing paste absorbed the colors of the distress inks as it dried.

Here are a couple close ups of the final card.  The bow -

The sentiment -

 Please come join us at Happy Little Stampers June Mixed Media Challenge.
