I made this card with the splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability challenge in mind.
The challenge this week is to use squiggles and lines, etc. which I did by outlining my words and the leaves and stems of the flowers. I even squiggled a few birds in the clouds!!

The background was made with watercolor paper. I misted it really good with water.
 I applied some different Distress ink colors to my work pad, added water, then mooshed the paper into the wet inks. I held the paper up so that the inks could move around the paper.  I used some Faber Castell crayons and colored around the edges. Also misted it with some Perfect pearls. It has a really pretty sheen IRL.

I made the flowers with one of my Verve flower dies. I cut them out  and misted them with water. I squished them up and let them dry. After drying,  I inked and painted them with gesso and distress inks.

Hope you like my Mixability card! Because I really like playing with all this stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!
