You Guessed it!  GREEN & RED

Going CAS with this one. Die cut the Merry
from an old CB alphabet set in red and green tones.
Sentiment is from Hero Arts
Tied silver trim to the e, attached a heart
and bow. Flicked some silver splats
(a little hard to see)
Attached to green card base. Easy peasy!

Creative Trading Coins

It's that time of the month for our 
New Anything Goes Mixed Media Challenge at
I went with something a little different for me - 
I love the concept of Artist Trading Cards
 but went with coins.

They are a whole lot of fun to make..
Here is how they came together
Die cut circles, added strips of washi tape
 coloured with Lindy's Magical's
with random stamping 
Added splatters with my posca pen
Die cut my insects from coloured Lindy's Magical's
but didn't use the beetle
I chose a variety of products for the backgrounds
and Tim's Small Talk sentiments but in black
The bee has gold thread
Dragonfly has dyed cheesecloth
and butterfly has sisal

Head over and check out what fabulous pieces
have been created for your pleasure and hope you
get to have a bit of mixed media time
to add to our Gallery.
