Good morning everyone! Lately, I have been experimenting with the "new" (to me) technique - Art/Mixed Media. It is so much fun to do this on cards! What is this? Well, to me it's "freedom stamping" -- get together any mixture of stamping images, and don't forget a few words, or sentiments. On my sample, I started with a water spritz background. (stamp inks on your acrylic pad careful not to overlap colors too much) - spritz with water, and stamp your cardstock. Now comes the fun part - just start stamping! Any images, and you can even use embossing powder on some of them -- what ever you are in the mood for. If you want, the final stage you can even run it through an embossing folder! Feel free to make a tag, a bookmark, a card or even an art journal page!! Whatever strikes your fancy and/or mood! :)
I made a card using most of my stamps and images from Basket Buddies, along with the "main" sentiment from Follow Your Dreams. I also added a little texture to liven things up. I opted not to emboss my main image, but in hindsight, I should have. I think I would of liked it even more.

I hope you try this fun way of stamping - I can't wait to see what you all come up with. Thanks for playing~
Oh this is so wonderful, Vicki! I may have to make more than one project. I agree - it's so freeing to just mess about with favorite supplies. The cool thing, you can use just a little of what you make, or a whole panel, like you've shown here. Whee!!
Fun challenge...I will play along;)
