Cat played in a challenge! :D

Hey y'all!!  Yes!  I played along in the Color Throw Down Challenge for this week:

I SOOOOoo love these colors together!  And I saw my fellow Gina K DT gal, Susie, and  her card inspired me to go have a look on the CTD blog....and since I just loved the colors, had to play!

I busted out the Gelli Plates for this card, its been a long time since I did some true mixed media.

This was alot of fun to make!  I just love the Gelli plates too.  I was doing a technique using package tape (card with that later on!)  and this piece of cardstock is what I would roll my brayer off on to remove some of the paint!  It was so pretty had to use it too, lol!  I stamped the big vine from Theresa Momber's Vine and Butterfly Stamp set and heat embossed it.  I do this when stamping over acrylic paint, heat emboss, so it wont smear.  I used a stylus to add some dots here and there...painted the daisy with the same acrylic paint and stamped the sentiment on some Washi paper and then tore it instead of cutting.  who needs scissors..right?  haha!  I distressed the edges with my new Tonic distress tool (omg I love this thing!!) Attached the daisy and sentiment using pop dots.  Did some layering and ta da!  all done!






Thanks for the fun challenge ladies!  I think it has been like years since I played along in a challenge!  LOL!  I enjoy them, dont know why I quit doing them...oh well, gonna try to keep that up!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  It's suppose to be cooler here and I cant wait!  I love to go camping when it first cools off, before its too cold for Billy! haha!  I dont think it can get too cold for me!  LOL!

Love, love the mixed media approach to this challenge! What great techniques...I need to check out that Tonic tool you commented on. I love to distress my work, but don't like the mess or the time it takes! LOL!
