New challenge at MMW - Masculine/Father's Day

Hi there, Lovelies! 

What a battle with the technology I had today... my pic reader decided to speak alien so I couldn't get the photos off it until I got an option to fix the issue and then our DT site on blogger decided to rebel. I don't know who at Blogger tinkers with what, but I would very much appreciate if this could be sorted. Aaaanyway,.. I got there in the end and a new post at Mixed Media World is up and our new challenge running so I hope you can join the fun. 

I had a lovely messy time creating a Father's Day card. It is not for Greg, he doesn't like mixed media.. he will get a printed Tesco's Value card printed on an A4 like he kindly did for me the other year when I asked him to make me a card for a Valentine's Day.. hehee... 

the fine specimen 

I put a little more effort into my card for a friend's hubby... I do hope he will like it... 

After creating a yummy texture on the background using a wall tape, cheese cloth, tissue paper covered in black gesso by Pebeo, I added some crackle paste by Prima and some Galeria glass bead gel. When dry I hot glued various embellishments, covered everything in black Gesso and sprayed the gorgeous Mixed Media line shimmer mister in turquoise by Decoart. I also used the white mister for contrast and the black mister for splatters, both by Decoart. In the end I added the Metallic Lustre (purple and champagne colours) by Decoart. How gorgeous these colours are together! Here are a few close ups... 

Thank you for stopping by! Hope you have a fab day!
