Joy Clair August Challenge: Anything Goes

Hello everyone…I am back again with some mixed media cards. Getting back to create is not easy especially after being off for 2 months. All I need is inspiration…lots of inspirations!

Today I got my inspiration from the image and color combo from the Joy Clair – Anything Goes August Challenge. The theme for this month is Layers: layers of colors, layers of papers, layers of stamps, etc. But this is an option for you to play along. Any new projects you created are welcome.

And for the background, I created them with the Ink Spritzer Tutorial on Splitcoaststampers forum. It a new fun technique I tried when creating these cards. I used Distress Mini Ink Pads that I smooshed on craft mat, sprayed with some water and added the cardstock, a great way to create texture watercolored background. I am thinking to try this technique with different mediums for my future projects.

If you need more some inspirations to create projects this month, you are invited to come over and play along with Joy Clair -Anything Goes August Challenge. You have until August 30th. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the Joy Clair Store. And one lucky winner will be announced on Joy Clair blog on August 31st. Here are the rules to play along:
