Mixed Media Birthday cards

Dina Wakley Scribbly Bird Birthday card

I'm delighted to back as a guest this month on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog. This week the theme is 'Mixed Media' with a focus on the products of Dina Wakely. 

I've created a couple of cards using Dina's paints, with one card featuring a Scribbly bird - an old, but go to stamp set!.

Both cards started with some texture paste applied through a couple of Tim Holtz circle stencils - I used Splotches and Bubble. I then added my paint in patches, merging a little or adding some white paint to tone down the 'joins. I used Turquoise, Fuscia, Tangerine and Ocean. Once dry I added some details with pen work, paint dots and lines (applied with an old credit card) and washi tape.

As my surface was textured I stamped the bird on tissue paper before adhering to the surface.

If you play along with this week's challenge at Simon Says stamp - you could win a $25 gift card to spend in store. I'll be back next week, for another challenge. Thanks for stopping by...
