The Card Concept Challenge #204

Welcome my stampy friends to our new challenge starting today at


Here is our Inspiration Photo: 

The moose and the colors inspired my Mixed Media Style card:

  • two or more mediums (for ex: inks, embossing powder, pencils, pastels, watercolor, charcoal, markers, pigments, mica powder, etc.)
  • may include dimensionals- embossing paste, gesso, fabric, found objects, papers, foils
  • may include heated elements- encaustic wax, embossing
  • can be a variety of styles- CAS, Graphic, Shabby Chic, Grunge
  • basically use of two or more mediums qualifies as Mixed Media 

Here is my card:

I used the Tim Holtz Merry Moose Dies to make the moose and the Tim Holtz Festive Things Dies to make the trees. Then I created a snowy scene.

The snow was created by splashing  Copic Opaque White mixed with a little water and a paint brush.
I also used Snow Fall Accents Puff Paint and a heat gun to create the snow puffs on the trees and his antlers.

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge
