a thousand thanks

** 6/9/15 Featured Project at Little Red Wagon! **

Hi everyone! I'm super stoked to share with you today another 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project. I created a mixed media canvas several weeks ago that I enjoyed so much, I just had to get out the supplies and do some more! I started another canvas this past weekend that's about half done... to be finished and posted soon... and created this mixed media card thank you card with watercolor, texture paste and stamping.

I used the absolutely gorgeous Clover crinkle ribbon from the Sunny Meadow Bundle. Green has been my favorite color since I can remember and sometimes I just can't get enough of it! I watercolored the background with a light green ink on watercolor paper, then mixed my texture paste with a little bit of medium green ink tapped onto my craft sheet that I "schloshed" onto a stencil, then finally randomly stamped the grunge effects in dark green ink. 

I layered a double row of the gorgeous green ribbon horizontally across the front just beneath the stenciled texture paste, added a multi loop bow and some sequins.

I also grunged up the inside and layered the stamped panel on some dark green cardstock.

Happy to enter my mixed media thank you card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Watercolor Paper (#122959), Stampin' Up! Whisper White (#100730), Stampin' Up! Mossy Meadow (#133676)
