Happy Little Stampers January Mixed Media Challenge

It is time to dig out your mixed media goodies and play along with the January Mixed Media Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.   The challenge this month is

Doesn't a walk in the garden sound lovely on a cold January day. 

This is the card I created.  It is a card for my daughter for her birthday.  I hand delivered it over the holidays.  I had to make an envelope for it because it was too fat to go in a normal envelope.

Here is a close up of the upper left hand corner of the card.  You can see the cheese cloth that I colored with distress oxide inks and all the flowers were also colored with the inks along with the background for the card.

Here is a close up of the seam tape that I colored with the oxide inks.  I love the variation of color I got in all the things I colored.

Here is a close up of one of the flowers I made with a die and crinoline.  I die cut the crinoline, colored the shapes and then scrunched them up to dry.

Here is a look of the different things I colored.

I added some embossing paste through a stencil to the base layer of the card.  The paste has a beautiful shine to it.

Here are more elements used on the final card.  The sentiment was heat embossed.  The sentiment is from Altenew. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Please come get your fingers messy and play with your mixed media supplies and join us for our January Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge which is flower garden.
