* For this event, Mixed Media is defined as stamps + ink, plus two other elements which add texture and/or dimension.
This tag was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. Pale green ink (Old Paper Distress Ink) was sponged over a harlequin (diamond) stencil and then two shades of brown distress inks (Antique Linen / Brushed Corduroy) were sponged around the tag, fading it out towards the center so the diamonds were still visible. A border of vines were stamped around the tag (second generation stamping with Brushed Corduroy ink) and the sentiment was stamped in Vintage Photo ink. The bird (perched reed bird die from memory box), branch, pine sprig nest and tab at top of tag are all die-cuts with sponged edges for interest. A red and gold ribbon was added to finish the tag.

Today's special Guest Designer is Shery, owner of STAMPlorations. I saw Shery’s beautiful stamps through my friend’s blogs (Kylie, Vicki, and Deepti) … they are all on her Design Team at STAMPlorations. :) I checked out Shery’s blog, One Layer, CAS and Mixed Media cards … and was instantly hooked. She is the master at one layer cards … seriously!! I’m in awe of her one layer cards … amazing depth and texture … so incredible! Shery is not only an artist and stamp designer, but she also makes the most beautiful mixed media cards and projects. And somehow she found the time a few months ago to start up a new challenge blog, Mixed Media Card Challenge. It was instantly successful, of course!! Shery designs stamps for her company --- STAMPlorations and is on the design teams for these challenges: Mixed Media Card Challenges, SRM Stickers, Time Out Challenges, 613 Avenue Challenges, and the Crafter’s Café Challenges --- wow! :)
