Hey Ya'll!! Welcome to another Mix It Up Monday hosted by ME! :D And Happy Fourth of July to all of those in the USofA!! I hope you have a fun and safe holiday!
Today's challenge is called 'Swipe On...Swipe Off' and its a technique challenge! Basically, it is Direct to Paper technique, meaning you are going to use ink, and swipe it onto your paper, creatin many interesting patterns! I have two examples I have done in the past to show you, the first one being a tad Patriotic:
And this one, wishing for Fall already! LOL!
On both of these cards, I just took my inkpads and 'Swiped on and swiped off', back and forth, with my ink pad on edge to get these looks! you can use your inkpad anyway you choose, just as long as you use it direct to paper in some way! Cant wait to see what you all come up with! Let your inner artist flow! :D
Now for all the small print!!

I love them both! You did a great job my talented sister!
Great technique, Cat. I used several memento inks and did more of a swirl motion in my "swiping" than straight line.
Hope that's acceptable. Anyway, I was anxious to use the Vintage Chic set and chose the carnival girl and embossed her image onto my swiped background and colored her in with metallic pens. She is very shimmery which every carnival girl should be. Here's my card. Thanks for looking.
Here's my submission:
