Zoe - Week # 44 "Mixing with mediums"

Good morning Lovelies, hope your all well?

This week the challenge for Premium Craft Brands DT is mixing with mediums, I've had a go is all I'm saying lol!

We are aware at PCB that not everyone has different mediums to play with or even want to, so this week we are making it "Anything Goes"

I've just used a bit of a cardboard box and took the top layer off revealing the corrugated innards, I mixed together Maimeri Matt Gel Medium and Red Chromium oxide shade Pan Pastel and just smeared in on with a spatula and left it over night to dry, using my fingertips I smeared over various golds and coppers of the Metallic Pan Pastels, I must say "it does look better in the flesh" the stamps and embellishments are Tim Holtz, the pen nib stamped image once I inked it I covered with the Maimeri Glassy medium, again the photo really doesn't do it justice, this was a little out of my comfort zone, but enjoyed it, I hope you like it?

Thank you for visiting, hope you will feel inspired to join in, there is a fab trial kit as prize for the winner xx

Hey Zoe: your card is so clever, I like the use of the corrugated paper! and YESm, on my card some people do NOT like at all Halloween, skeletons or other dead stuff, me neither specially when it is HORRIBLY scary or bloody :)
