March Farm Fresh Challenge

Hey everyone! It’s a brand new month and that means a new Farm Fresh Challenge over the The Greeting Farm!

This month the challenge is Mixed Media! Now you can go all out and make a lovely canvas, keep it simple and do a one layer card with copic colouring and a distress ink background! It doesn’t have to be elaborate or super simple to be called mixed media, it just has to have more then one medium on the project.

I landed somewhere in the middle, my image, Blush Bebe was coloured with my standard Copic markers, I then edged all of my papers in distress ink before roughing them up a little. The chipboard was painted with Gouache that I tinted with some pigment powders. after putting on the flowers and getting the card all set together some molding paste really finished it off!

I hope you are willing to step outside of your comfort zone, or play within your favorite style with us on this months challenge!

Hey everyone, back again with another Besties card! This is Im802 with kitty. I coloured her up with my Inktense pencils.

IMG802 1

I was so happy I had patterned papers handy that went well with the colours on the image. I do not plan ahead I colour images with whatever colours I want to then I attempt to pull coordinating things to complete the card. Sometimes I am unsure I have anything that will work.
