52CCT Mixed Media Challenge

This week's technique challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is "mixed media". I watched a lot of very fun instructional videos! Here's what I made:

I built up the background with gesso, Ranger distress paints and distress inks. I glued on the Martha Stewart punch snowflakes and added another layer of gesso. Then I used the Ranger Texture Paste with Tim Holtz "Bubble" stencil. I paper pieced the MFT Pure Innocence stamp and added stickles and ribbon. The most fun aspect was using the Texture Paste--can't wait to use it again. Thanks for this fun challenge, 52CCT!

Brilliant! I love the way you've built up the layers on the background - the texture is just super. Love the glitter too. And such a cute image. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

Sherry, your card is adorable!!! Even though the stencil is called "Bubble", it looks like snowballs here. :) Your paper piecing is perfect as always. Thanks so much for joining us at 52CCT! I've been enjoying seeing what you've been creating for our challenges.
