Thought of you Today and Smiled

Finally home from work and able to upload my card that I made this morning for the challenge on splitcoastampers.  They have recently started a new challenge on a Friday called Mix-ability, where we use mixed media on our projects.  Since I have recently bought quite a bit of mixed media, it was perfect for me this morning.

Anyway, for todays challenge we had to use 2 different mediums and do some hand drawn doodling.  I am NOT a doodler on my cards, in fact I don't think I have EVER doodled on a card.  Yikes!!  Anyhoo, I started with some watercolor paper and sprayed some art anthology spray onto my craft mat and then spritzed it with some water.  I then lay my paper into the liquid and smooshed it around and dried it with my heat gun.  I wasn't happy with how it looked, so I took some dylusions white linen spray and sprayed that onto my mat on top of the other spray and smooshed my paper into it once more and zapped it with my heat gun again.  Better!  Next I stamped my image and sentiment and then doodled around the edge with a black marker.  Finally I sprayed some pearlized water over the top and mounted my panel onto my card base.  Mood when done?  Happy!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
