Recently I've been seeing projects that outside of my 'wheelhouse' but have been so inspiring.   I compiled a bunch of ideas and here's how I was inspired:


If you've been following me for a bit, you know that I'm generally clean + crisp.  I don't do mixed media/grungy very often but THIS card had me inspired.  

Let's start with the sentiments.  It's a combo of three sets:
Snail Mail
This Says It All
So Many Sentiments [heat embossed in white on Midnight cardstock]


The butterflies are from Butterfly Dreams.  I originally was going to combine it with Stained Glass Butterflies and Butterfly Wreath but just couldn't get it all to flow.

The base panel is Brisol, the sentiments have been stamped with Versafine Onyx.  I used the smooshing technique with a sheet of acetate and the following Distress Oxides [Kristina Werner combo]:
Crackling Campfire
Dried Marigold
Antique Linen


I used the Cross Tiles Cover Panel as a stencil and used the Therm O Web Glitz Glitter Gel.  That panel has been trimmed down and adhered to an A2 panel of Premier Polar White.

That's it for me, have a great week!
