MMCC #22 second reminder


Just a reminder that you still have ten days to join in with a SUNSHINE card over at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. Today I've got not only a sunshine of sorts, but also some bricks!


For this card, I let some textured PP do the work for me. Onto it I stamped a Belarto Nova large bloom using a foam stamp and acrylic paint. Mimics the sun, right?

I stencilled some colored-with-acrylic-paint embossing paste through Dutch Doobadoo Bricks stencil at the bottom edge and perched a felt birdie on it.

Some messy stitching around the edges and a few stamped "happy" sentiments from STAMPlorations Vignette: Chevron and Arrows finished off my card.


See all that texture thanks to the embossed PP (it even has sparkles in the letters!), the matt paint, the paste and the birdie? Yet easy peasy.

Hope you'll join us this month over at the MMCC!

I'm playing at:
Pinkfresh Studio's April Challenge where they want to see stitching or thread. Yep.
Seize the Birthday - the topping this time is Floral and since my sun is actually a bloom...

I like this one Maria. Really a great use of the patterned paper, and I love the contrast of the shiny to the mat. This is really a 'happy' birthday card. Such fun colors too! Bev

Vibrant colors, love the stitching. I just linked up a card to MMCC, I find myself pretty bad with a proper mixed media card...I have the ability to do only a CAS mixed media...I admire at your mixed media cacards Maria!
