Mixing and Aliens, Oh my!

Playing around with mixed media is very relaxing to me so whenever I can, I like to play in the Splitcoaststampers mix-ability challenge as well as various other "mixing" challenges.  This week's mix-ability challenge is to DRIP color.  The two mediums I chose were a clogged bottle of glimmer spray and MFT Sno Cone reinker.  I knew that someday I would figure out how to get the ink out of that bottle!!

I took off the spray nozzle from the glimmer spray and  dripped it down the paper with a little help of  blown air from a straw and then I dripped Sno Cone reinker in between the dark legs..um drips. this is what I came up with.  Tell me, doesn't this look like something out of a scary sci fi movie?  Alien legs, dozens of them!  

After putting aside the panel for about 24 hours this is how I decided to use it:


No more alien legs, instead a very down to earth, sea and air panel!!!  

Thanks for looking!

  2. This card is SO neat! I love the color scheme and your dripped background is fabulous! (P.S. I cracked up about your alien leg comment. Luckily it doesn't look like that at all on your card.)

  6. Angie,
    I thought it looked like the inside of a car wash but beautiful in its wildness. The finished product is breathtaking. The swirls offset by the floral embellishments are perfect and the sentiment seems like it was made for the background.
    We love seeing your artwork THANK YOU for posting your project with us.
    Blessings
