WE LOVE TO CREATE, ANYTHING CREATIVE, MIXED MEDIUM GOES TUTORIAL TIME XXXX

Hello there crafters, Today it is Tutorial day for the 




 It is my turn to put a tutorial together for your inspiration and I just loved doing this for you.



I colored the ULA Image from Polkadoodles, with my copic markers.....I love coloring and this amazing cute girl was a lot of fun to color.

 So what I did was I cut a piece of paper that I wanted for my background, took some colors Distress Ink and splashed some water on top to let it flow over the paper. The best way to do that is to hold the paper between 2 fingers and then spray the water. You can rotate the paper so that water goes over it. That way you get a mix of colors on your background.



After the background paper is dry, I have added some color. Also, the brown color along the edges of the paper and a bit of green.

 Than offcourse I wanted to be sure that the background colors would fit with Ula....and I thought she did fit in perfectly.

 I thought the background was a bit bald, so I used a stencil to fill the background. The Grit Paste gives the flower a 3D-effect and takes in the color from the Distress inks.


When the Paste was dry I got my waterpen, the fabulous stampset from Polkadoodles, calles Bonfleur and stamped 2 butterflies from the stampset. I colored the butterflies with the Distress Oxide and cut them out of the paper. The background was colored with the Oxides too. This time I used the Distress Inks but you can easliy work with the PanPastels too. They work great on the background and also to color your Digi stamps and Stamps.



Working with the Paste gives the flowers a real 3D effect. Still thought the background was a bit bald so I stamped a few tiny flowers on the paper. I colored the tiny ones with distress too and I was happy with the result. 



A bit upclose so you can see what I mean with the flowers having a 3D effect with the Paste. 



Oke so my background is finished with the fab colors and the stencilled flowers. Now all I need is the colored image from Ula, so I decided to get some doublesided tape on it and placed the image on my background paper.




So what do ya all think, I am pretty happy about it, and if you tell me Mixed Mediums don't mix with digi images, you'r totally wrong eh? All it needed was a few words...I thought Sending Lots of Love would be just perfect....and to finish I have placed the colored butterflies on the flower and on top of the card and my card is finished. 


So there ya go, my project that I wanted to share with you for your inspiration is finished. I sure hope you are going to get your thinking cap on and get those fabulous digi stamps from Nikky, from Polkadoodles...I am sure you are going to love these cuties.....

Thank you all for stopping by and hope I gave you some ideas on what you can make with Mixed Mediums and Digistamps mixed with stamps.
Have Fun.
