Happy little Stampers - Mixed Media May Challenge

Do pop over to Happy Little Stampers to see the fabulous inspiration for this Challenge!

Today I am showing you part of my MIxed Media Prompt booklet,
 that I started making at the Crafty Retreat I went to recently with UK Stampers Network

The idea is - when I've lost my mojo I can just flip through
 and remind myself of a technique I could use...

We put the booklets together at the retreat -
 basically lots of gelli plate backgrounds, die cut to shape and bound together. 

Since then I have been adding samples to the pages...

On the left I added texture paste and coloured the image with Promarkers - on the right a 'Brusho' background, a digi print out and colouring with Zig real brush pens.

On the left I added strips of masking tape and added distress ink to the gaps, and then added strips of washi. You may remember me using this on a recent pocket letter.
On the right I used a Stampin' Up owl punch with old book pages and a fineliner.

But to get on to today's challenge:

On the left, I dripped ink splats and stamped splats using a Crafters Companion stamp set - 'Splats and Stains'. I also added a strip, cut using Die-namics 'Dripping Goo Edge'.
 On the right I splattered paint using a toothbrush.

I then used these ideas to make an ATC - toothbrush splatter for the background on top of an orange card base, layers of the stamped splats and dripped ink cut out and distressed around the edges with wild honey. I then added a strip of Dripping Goo die cut and a punched sentiment - the stamp is from Technique Tuesday - 'Get Crafty',  also distressed around the edge.

This is an extra ATC for Day 127 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

Happy Crafting!


  1. this is a wonderful idea.
    I always keep one of the cards I've made as a
    sample for my card class. The only problem
    is that when I go back and look at them I'm
    not always sure what I used or how they were
    made. This book would be a great reminder.
    thanks for the idea.

  2. WOW... they all are amazing mixed media cards. I love how you organize them.

  3. wonderful project, great idea of document them in this way and use for inspiration -

  4. That is such a brilliant idea - what a fabulous little book. :-) I wish I had one that told me WHAT to use .... so much stuff that I can never decide LoL xxxx

  5. Wow Susan!! this is really amazing !!
