In My Heart

There is a new challenge: CAS Mix-Up Challenge. Mixed media is not something I do, but I really like the idea of it, so I’m taking up this challenge to help stretch myself.

The first challenge was to use watercoloring, stamping, and a user’s choice. Here is my card:

I did the Splash Technique that Loll used in the reminder post.

I used burlap as my choice. I also did splattering, but I wasn’t sure if that showed up enough to qualify.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. Hi Karen!! Great splash watercolour background. Isn’t it amazing how much (visual) texture you get from this technique??!! 🙂 Awesome, and I LOVE your burlap heart — so sweet, especially with the little stitch in the middle. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
