Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #22 - "Inspiration Photo"

Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #22

***please remember to add this graphic to your blog post***

Our sponsor for this challenge is Waffle Flower Crafts - a great online crafty retailer of original stamps and dies.

Our lucky random winner will receive a 
$25 gift certificate from Waffle Flower!!

Our March Guest Designer is Tessa Wise from Waffle Flower Crafts!

Hi there! I’m Tessa Wise, a mama and cardmaker from Northern Virginia. I am married to Jeremy and we have two little girls, Zoey and Natalie. I’ve been crafty all my life but paper crafts are my favorite. I love my stamps and ink! I also love to share what I know- I teach cardmaking and scrapbooking classes at local stores and events.
Tessa created this beautiful mixed media card 
for our March "Photo Inspiration" Challenge. 

I created the background of this card with a triangle shaped Gelli Plate and some Tim Holtz Distress Paints.  I used my scraper on some of them to add texture.  Once those dried, I added some embossing paste through a stencil.  I also splattered some pretty gold mist over the entire thing to add a bit of sparkle.  I used Waffle Flower Crafts's Magical Stamp Set, Magical Word Die, and Magical Die to stamp and cut everything out.  I kept my coloring simple since the background was so colorful already. 

 And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...
