I am hosting this week's Mix-Ability Challenge in the challenge forum at SplitCoastStampers! The challenge is called White Wash! (Mix136)Showcase your focal point with lots of white space. You can leave white areas of your paper untouched, or create white space over other colors w/ white paint, white ink, or gesso.
To create my card, I stamped Impression Obsession's Pumpkin Fence image in black Memento ink. I colored the image with a combination of ShinHan Touch Twin markers and Prismacolor colored pencils. I added a thin wash of white craft ink around the image and on the fence panels to give a bit of a glow to the scene. I used the stamp called Barcode inked with various shades of brown Distress Inks to stamp visual texture around the image panel and card base.
The idea behind the Mix-Ability Challenge is to make mixed media simple and approachable, and to let you experiment using things you already have. Each Friday a new challenge is hosted, but there is no time limit, so you can participate whenever you'd like on each challenge. Join us, won't you!?
