There's a new set of challenges on SCS called Mix-ability. They encourage use of mixed media. That sounds complicated, but they make it easy! This week's challenge was to use metal along with some other medium. I remembered I had some copper, so I decided to see what I could do with that. I ran it through the big shot with the houndstooth embossing folder. Next, I sponged it with Early Espresso ink to tone down the brightness. Then I mixed Baja Breeze with white craft ink and sponged that on to the metal to simulate the patina on weathered copper. I discovered that I needed to heat set it because it took forever to dry.
I decided to use the sketch from the Fab Friday challenge blog. The cardbase is Baja Breeze. I stamped the Just Thinking image onto whisper white with VersaMark and Early Espresso ink, and then I embossed it with clear EP. I watercolored part of the image with Baja Breeze. I added a strip of Early Espresso cardstock and a bronze button.
