So many favourite things right there. I'm inspired by Becca to try new mixed media things all the time - every time I haul out a stencil or paste I think of her :) I know I'll play along more than once, but for my first time I decided to give her dip-dyeing technique a try. She explains how in the birthday bash post.
Of course, because I'm different (read: too lazy to get up a fill a mister with water) I used pearl mist. This background is from a 'second dip' - I love the dotted and lighter intensity of the colours. Don't worry, I have a bunch more of these backgrounds to play with :)
Supplies: Unity Stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; unknown stitched banner die; 1.5" circle punch; Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn distress inks; homemade perfect pearls mist; MME enamel dots & random bling; organza fabric from stash; googly eyes
Really, a card celebrating Becca was gonna have googly eyes on it.
I paper-pieced the sherbet with another piece of dip-dyed paper that didn't blend as well. I made the inside of the bowl green too because hey, it's freaking hot and any sherbet worth its salt would be melty. The organza was frayed & heated with the heat gun. Love that stuff!
Happy Birthday Becca!! MWAH!!!
