Life Is A Blank Canvas


It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.

 - 

Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something using just the three (or more) elements selected.

Today's festivities are in celebration of International Women's Day, which is celebrated on March 8th. The challenge runs from February 19 - March 1.

For my Women-themed project, I used: heart, girls/women, lipstick. I really wanted to push myself to do something out of my comfort zone for this one - and also something loving and encouraging. I decided to make a card with a mixed media collage design. I recently bought a wonderful array of stamps and stencils from Funky Fossil Designs. I used a gel press panel that I created a while ago for my background and built on the design from there. I am super pleased with the way it came out.

Supplies Used:
Stamps~Funky Fossil Designs Musings, Lotus Reflections, She Is Fierce. STAMPlorations Scribbly Splattery Grunge. Essentials By Ellen All Inside by Julie Ebersole.
Accessories~Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle Dies

Stephanie, I admire how you so successfully created a different style card and with such a great message. I love the look of mixed media, but out of my comfort zone too, but your card is great inspiration!
