Mixed Media Challenge July ~ A touch of Nature

For this week's new City Crafter Challenge go here

 Hi Friends! I'm so excited and honored to have been chosen as one of Shery's new DT members for the Mixed Media Card Challenge! (Thank You Shery!) She has an awesome lineup of really talented people and I'm so excited to see and be inspired by their work :-) Thank You miss Sue for the info :-)
 

I started with a manila tag . I sprayed 3 different colors of Dylusions sprays (Tangerine, Pure Sunshine, Fresh Lime) directly onto the stencil MPD Concentric Circles , then I layered the tag on top of the stencil to create the back ground. The bird is water colored with distress pens. The  flowers are stamped from a PTI set called Polka Dot Parade # 2  , The bird is from Dina Wakley called Scribbly Birds . I colored the ribbon with some spray ink also. I love this little bird and I'm afraid he will be used a lot lol!



I hope you can join in the fun this month! The 1st challenge starts July 1-25 Go here to check out this awesome Mixed media Challenge Blog and all the awesome DT'S creations!! I'm positive you will have lots of fun!!
I'm home today from my daughters and here's a picture of my new grandbaby :-) more to follow :-). I am the luckiest girl ever! She is so so precious!


Hugs Char
