So now we go on to the challenge and this week the theme is....

Mixing with Mediums......

This is what I made....

I made a card .....it has been a long time since I made a card so I thougth why not.....

I worked on the background with Metallic PanPastels and Gesso with Iridescent Paste. On top another layer with Metallic Pans.and to finish the background I played with Crackle...

the flowers were made with Versamark Embossing ink and white embossingpowder. The background I made with the Metallic Pans and water, I love the effect it gives. 

The butterflies were worked on with Metallic Pans and Iridescent Paste. Do you see what the Irisdescent Paste does to the butterflies? It gives a nice shiny effect on them and together with the Metallic PanPastels is just looks great......I think....

So this is my finsihed card, I love the simplicity of it. I really like the effect the embossed flowers and the background of the flowers shows. Metallic PanPastsels really work on corrugated card and gives a very nice look even with Crackle on them.....so you can use Irisdescent Paste on lots of products too. I choose to work with the corrugated card and paper. If you want to know exactly HOW you can use the different mediums then you should check out the Challenge Blog for more information, you can find everything on the blogpost from Nikky. 

So here you can see the embossed flowers even better. And to finish my card I placed a piece of rope and some lace......So I had fun making my card, you wanna have fun too....then come on over to the Premium Craft Brands Blog and join into the fun and don't forget to sign up for the Candy that is up for grabs.....

Have loads of fun and don't forget to check out my amazing teamies and what they have made for you for your inspiration.
