By The Sea 4 Mixed Media Monday


I have been seeing lots of post for challenges that look like they would be so fun and now that the ATC workshop I was in has ended I thought maybe I would have time to do one or two now and then. There are several I have looked at that I would like to try but I just don’t seem to have the time and energy to do challenges every week. So I thought I would just do what I can when I can :) This is the first one I thought I would try. It is for Mixed Media Monday and the theme was “By The Sea”. For my card I started with dry brushing white cardstock with blue. Then I stamped my little verse and embossed some swirlies on. I layered that onto teal cardstock that had been edged with versa mark ink and embossed pearl and glitter. Then I added some mulberry paper, a grunge board swirly and pop dotted my vintage postcard image on top. I then added a little stickles to that to give it a touch more sparkle.
