Paper Players Challenge & Fun Stuff

 
The Paper Players are running a color challenge this week.  I really struggle with using pinks -- I have no problem with reds, but pinks not so much.  So, I forced myself out of my box to play in this challenge - Rose Red, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink.  I have been playing around with the mixed media technique on cards and today a tag.  I love this type of stamping -- total freedom and lots of fun.  I hope using black was okay with this challenge!


 Like I said, I have been really enjoying using mixed media on my cards.  Actually, I did get a journal the other day, but I am afraid I will mess it up LOL -- this way I get to practice before I get to my journal! :)  I just can't get over how much fun this is to do.  I guess the only hassle of it is getting all the different stamps out that I want to use.  I can't even list what I used since I used sooo many~ and what was really great was I used stamps that have been in my drawer for months.... untouched.  Free stamping ~~I love it.  Get out those buried stamps and play!!
Thanks for stopping by~
