Mixed Media Card Challenge #4

(If you're looking for my Exploration STAMPlorations post it's here.)


Happy October! Leaves changing colors and trick-or-treaters. At least in some necks of the woods! It's time for a new Mixed Media Card Challenge and this time it's about "vintage". My mind went to some Halloween stamps from Waltzingmouse and Inkadinkado that have a great vintage-y feel to them and this is what I did.


If you need a refresher, here's the deal on what makes a card a mixed media card. But basically, it's about TEXTURE, DIMENSION and TECHNIQUES.

Texture? I've got distressed edges and heat embossed witch and sentiment.
Dimension? How about a raised die cut and gems?
Techniques? Inked over the embossing which resists ink and splattered with water.

There is an optional element every month, and this month it's a key. But I opted not to use one. (I'm still maintaining that I can create a mixed media card and keep it kinda CAS ;) Check out the DT's fabulous creations and show us what you've got. The challenge runs until October 25th.


Supplies:
Paper:  Bringmann, Coredinations, Neenah, MME
Stamps: BG Hero Arts, witch WMS, sentiment and stars Inkadinado
Ink : Distress Inks, black Memento
Tools: die Spellbinders
Other: black embossing powder, gems
