Woodware UK: Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge...All Mixed Up!

The Woodware team are playing along with the Crafty Cardmaker's challenge once again. This time with Mixed Media, and boy, have I mixed my medias for this one!

My base is a wood door hanger from Woodware, which I slapped on a coat of black acrylic paint over the surface. When dry (just a few minutes), I taped my Dreamweaver Large Scales stencil on top, and spread Crackle Embossing Paste over it, removed the stencil to clean, and set aside the hanger to dry.

Meanwhile, I played with my dimensional elements...

 First, I pasted on acetate the Dreamweaver Scallop and Nautilus shell stencils with Gold and Pearlescent pastes, respectively. Both were sprinkled with various Metallic F/X powders before heating with a heat tool until bubbly and mostly dry. You can pat down the bubbling a bit after it's cooled. These were cut out and set aside.

Secondly, I dripped Color Solutions over a few white paper flowers and set these aside to dry.

Thirdly, I die cut the Dreamweaver Leafless Tree out of orange cardstock to mimic coral.

Finally, I stamped the Stampendous Cling Mermaid on tissue paper and colored her with markers. I used a clear medium to adhere her over the now dry and crackled surface of my door hanger.

Now I could really have fun...I added color to the background using a large stencil brush and my Splendor ink pad with all of it's palette of colors. I traced the Zen Fish stencil over the top using a Sakura Micron Pen, and colored with markers. Then I applied Translucent Paste over the surface of the fish, and let dry.

Once dry, I used Glossy Accents to adhere sprinkles of Stampendous Color Fragments, adhered Mark Richards Pearl Clusters, a portion of my die cut "coral", and my Molten Magic sea shells with my bright flowers.

I love projects like this as you never know quite where they'll take you! Play along with the challenge by submitting your Mixed Media project on the Crafty Cardmakers blog site. For more inspiration, visit the Woodware blog to see what our team has been "mixing" up!
