MIUCB DT Project for 1 September 2022

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! It's time for the next challenge at Mix It Up challenge blog! Participants have 6 weeks to enter Sept 1- Oct 15. The theme is Anything Goes with a technique option of smooshing (inks). This is my 2nd design team commitment for MIUCB!!!

I have to admit I haven't done much ink smooshing. It's easier to dab and smear in my opinion. For the backdrop of the stamped sentiment, I applied gray, lime green, pine green, and aqua onto a plastic bowl, spritzed with water, then pressed down the watercolor sketch paper onto the watered ink. This was only 1 application. The sketch paper is thin so I stopped with the one time. I used a circle stencil to trace my shape to fit the lime green scalloped circle that had been in my stash scraps for a long time. 

The olive green patterned paper triangle had also been in stash scraps for maybe 2 years!!! The color hues almost fit an analogous color scheme. Another old stash item are the strips of a long border sticker on the right side. The newest items are the butterflies and then the ribbon 'tape' of light blue with tiny white dots. 

Butterflies have landed slimline card (about 4 1/8" x 7 1/4")=
