Skys the Limit

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Friday!!! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and having a great week!!! Today I would like to share a creation with you that I made using some brand new SCACD images and lots of fun products SCACD carries!!! Hope you enjoy my creation today!!!

I had a blast making this creation, isn't she fun???? Have you tried Mixed Media?? If you haven't you must give it a try, I know when I first starting playing with these AWESOME products, it was a bit out of my comfort zone but once I started I couldn't believe how fun it is to try something different!!!!

I started this creation by stamping these fantastic wings Black Canvas Wings Set, with orangish/yellow pigment ink, heat embossed and outlined the sentiment with my black Copic marker. I then colored the background around the image with my E31 Copic Marker.

Next I stamped this brand new image Black Canvas and Resilient Woman with Memento Black Ink, I then stamped her again on a piece of Bo Bunny Paper from the et cetera collection paper pieced and attached her with adhesive on top of my wings. Right now this great paper pad is 10% off while supplies last :)

Once my image was done, I designed my card layout

5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base very vanilla
Next three layers of cardstock
Close to cocoa cardstock, basic black, and Bo Bunny et cetera

Once I had my card base completed I embossed a black piece of cardstock using brocade cuttlebug embossing folder...( Right now this fab folder is 20% off) Tore the black paper, and then attached it to my top layer of my card. Next I adhered my wings and woman images on the card :)

For my embellishments I used my Sizzix Die Flowers 3-D, created my flowers, added distress ink to them..Once I added my flowers to my card, I used my new favorite die by Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork... Have you tried Memory Box dies???? OMG they are absolutely beautiful and cut so perfectly with your cuttlebug....

Last but not least, do you see that metal in the right hand corner?? I wanted to add a little something "extra" I kept looking at my creation and it felt like it needed a little something else. These brass embellishments are FABULOUS...They are Vintaj altered blanks. You can emboss them, ink them, imprint on them, so many I decided to emboss it to match my black layer of embossing with my brocade cuttlebug folder!!! I really loved the effect it had!!! Couldn't forget a little bit of bling on the right bottom side :) :)

I hope I didn't take up too much of your time today, I wanted to share with you how I made this creation so maybe you would want to give Mixed Media a shot!!! So much fun!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you have a WONDERFUL Friday!!!!
