Feux Mixed Media

Hello Ai Fans! This week I'm working on designing a greeting card inspired by mixed media techniques.

I started with a piece of A2 size card stock.  I taped it down with low tack tape to square off one corner, and then used a water brush to add distress inks to one area.

I removed the tape and added color to the rest of the card.

Next I used the ever popular bubble wrap with ink to add some dots. :o)

I used mini mister filled with water, black soot distress reinker and a scoop of forever violet Perfect Pearls to spritz over a plastic piece I had around my house. I think it came in a pizza box. :o) You can find treasures all over your house! :o)

I used a circle template and white paint pen to draw a few random circles.

For the final artistic touch, I inked up the Dragonfly (Sku#P1996) image and  TC Mini Dragonfly (Sku#F2544) image and stamped them randomly. 

Supplies Used:
