Mixed Media Birthday

Blessed Sunday to you!  I had some time to play this morning and created a few different projects while playing with the new Darkroom Door release.  The new texture stamps are fabulous and perfect for a little mixed media touch.  I decided to join in on the Mixed Media Challenge around the house.  I used an old toothbrush to sprinkle on my white acrylic paint.

I am swimming in cards and other projects but when the girls are looking for a birthday card for their friends they say there aren't any to be found.  I decided today to try something a little more free form to see if this would suit a girl teenager.  Although when I finished I realized this would make a pretty anniversary or wedding card.

I started with spraying an area on white cardstock using Tattered Angel - Cornflower blue Glimmer Mist.  After that dried II  spritzed a layer of white acrylic paint mixed with water to add a touch of white inky sprinkles. Next I used the Hero Arts - White chalk ink with the new Weathered Stripes texture stamps  to stamp stripes across vertically.      I decided to turn the stamp and repeat the stamping to give a hash mark effect.

I took the new splatter stamp  stamped in Ranger Archival - Blue Violet   and added random bits of color along with a few hearts from the Fun & Games  set.   I added the birthday sentiment from the Simple Sayings. 

Thanks for stopping by!
