Where Creativity Meets C9 July Challenge:: Mixed Media

**For my New Craft Stash Blog Hop Post, please scroll down or click here**

The August Challenge for Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge is all about Mixed Media. If your preference is Clean and Simple designs like me, the concept of Mixed Media can be a little intimidating, but for this challenge we are looking for the use of two different mediums. Time to pull out all your mixed medium tools and supplies and  incorporate them with the amazing stamps and dies from Concord & 9th (affiliate links used)! We can't wait to see how you were inspired, as this challenge is dedicated to the innovative stamp company and their products!

For my Mixed Media card, I used the Stuck on You Stamp Set, one of my favorites due to the large, simple and fun cacti images and planters. I stamped the planters onto blush paper and applied some Whipped Spackle mixed with ink for a terra cotta textured look. I love the worn look! I also used Whipped Spackle with a mix of green inks for the catcti. After the spackle dried, I outlined the images with a black pen, fussy cut them and adhered them to a textured white card base. I finished the card by creating some bases/shadows with a Copic Marker and a lovely sentiment from the Many Mandalas Stamp Set.

The challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Concord & 9th and one lucky random entry will receive a $25 gift certificate for a Concord & 9th shopping spree. The favorite entry will be asked to guest design for a future challenge! The challenge runs until July 29th, so there is plenty of time to pull out your favorite Concord & 9th stamps and die and create Plus, new Concord & 9th products were released TODAY and they are fantastic!

  3. Definitely the way to go for CAS mixed media! Those pots and cacti are amazing! I need to dabble with the spackle more often! I've scrolled down and looked at all I've been missing and there is A LOT, and each one fantastic! Sorry I've been gone, summer is just like that. Speaking of summer, we need to get together! How's your August looking?
