Hey everyone! It has been a busy week! I hope you all are staying cool during this hot summer! I LOVE Tim Holtz and I LOVE the look of mixed media so I gave it a go. I have dabbled in the mixed media world from time to time, and I usually tend to lean towards the browns when I do mixed media, but I chose to go black this time. I wanted to use the Cocktails Blueprint stamp set from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous and make it bright and tropical while still making it look mixed media. I am pleased with the results!
I first got out my Distress Oxide inks and did some ink blending for the background using Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Kitsch Flamingo and Festive Berries. I then added some white Gesso on the left side of the card panel. I then stamped the cocktail image on the gesso side of the card and colored it with Prisma colored pencils. I then added some images from the Ultimate Grunge and added some platter using Distress Sprays and then used Distress Ink Black Soot on the edges. I really love how it came out. I need to practice more but I am pleased with the results. I hope you like it! I will see you all this weekend!
