My project today is a little out of the box for me - mixed media.  I started out by watercoloring a Strathmore illustration ATC board using watercolor crayons and a watercolor brush, then letting it dry.  Once dry, I stamped my saying and images in memento black before chalking the sun and adding some purple streaks to imitate an early winter morning and layering.  After adding some silver brads and some silver foil snowflakes, I stamped the card for my background using the same branch image in pacific pointe ink before adding the layered mixed media image.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs for a chance to win today's featured set.

The tiger cards are gorgeous and I love the idea of stamping the one image on black! I really like all the layers on your duck card. I forget to layer sometimes although I love the look!
