With Brave Wings

When I saw the Color Throwdown swatch for this week I really wanted to play along and after not much consideration at all, realised I really, really wanted to get down and grungy with some mixed media. 

Naturally, I dug out my stuff and got to playing! Spritzing, speckling, crackling, sponging - oh my, what fun I had and although (as happens so often, lol) my card ended up different to what I had originally visualized, I am very happy with it. 

Materials used:

  • stamps - Tiny Text (Tim Holtz)
  • card - kraft, watercolour
  • distress oxide inks - walnut stain, gathered twigs, crackling campfire
  • distress spray stains - crackling campfire, gathered twigs, antique linen, frayed burlap
  • distress oxide sprays - ground espresso, walnut stain, wild honey, fossilized amber, dried marigold, ripe persimmon
  • distress paints - antique linen, walnut stain
  • other TH products - Brushstroke Butterfly dies, distress crackle paste, splat box, water spritzer, Sidekick, gathered twigs distress crayon, ground espresso archival ink
  • other - leaf die cuts (SU), blending brush, sponge daubers, MISTI, Dimensionals, stitched rectangle die, Big Shot, fan paintbrush, heat tool, early espresso marker (SU), ruler, baby wipe

Thanks for calling in.
