Paper craft project no. 433: Instinct is enough one layer mixed media card

We have a brand new challenge at Time Out and for the next couple of weeks, it's Home Sweet Home inspiration photo. 

I zeroed in on the flowers and the orange color (one of my favorite colors) and created a one layer mixed media card. I had my Gelli plate and acrylic paints out so decided to do some monoprinting. The background of my card is one of several prints I made off the ARTplorations Bloom Factory stencil. There was paint left on the stencil after I had pressed it on the Gelli plate to pull a couple of prints. Not one to waste paint, I pressed my card base on the stencil to get another print. I finished the card by stamping one of my favorite quotes (from STAMPlorations' Art Is).

Check out the cards the team + guest designers Elisabeth and Kylie made and then link up your own project inspired by the photo. We can't wait to see them! Happy Little Stampers is sponsoring this challenge.


And I'm joining in at the CAS Mix Up April Challenge. I completely missed the first challenge (mommy duties + dealing with a sick baby) but this month, I resolved to play. I've got stamping and stenciling. For my choice, I went with two: acrylic paint (product) and monoprinting (technique).

Also playing at One Layer Simplicity Challenge (haven't played there in ages!), where this month, we can create anything we wish (as long as it's one layer, of course!)

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
