Mixed Media Card Challenge Reminder

Hi there. I'm just popping in with a reminder for the Mixed Media Card challenge. The theme this month is *Home*, with an optional element *Lace*.

Although I have been using lots of media in my previous MMCC cards, they have mostly been a clean and layered style, so I decided to get a bit more Artsy this time - I hope you like it!

I will list in point form how I went about creating this card so that it makes more sense.
- embossed the grass with an embossing folder
- debossed the clouds with another embossing folder
- coloured the grass with distress markers and a Wink of Stellar pen
-Added shading to the grass with Pan Pastel
- coloured the clouds with an oil pastel (shimmer white)
- sprayed home made mist over the sky (distress ink/water/ perfect pearls)
and went over the clouds again with oil pastel when dry
 -Added some colour shine to the grass
- die cut panel
-covered chipboard house with book paper, painted with Gesso and sanded the edges
- coloured the roof and door with red ink and the window with black and added shimmer with glitter pen
-coloured chipboard tree with Memento Luxe
- white embossed the chipboard fence
- die cut birds and coloured with glitter pen
-die cut pennant and white embossed the sentiment
PHEW! I hope that all makes sense!

You still have plenty of time to join in the challenge as it runs until 25 Dec. If you would like more inspiration, then pop over to the MMCC to see what the design team have created here and here.
