The weekend is here once again, and today is another challenge introduction day at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown!  This week we have a technique challenge for our participants:  Mixed Media.  Use a variety of techniques, textures, and materials on your festive card.  There’s really no “wrong” way to do it!

I have to admit that the term “mixed media” makes me balk.  I can’t explain why, but it always sounds pretty daunting to me.  But really, it’s not that difficult.  I haven’t gone all out for my card, but I did incorporate several things that I don’t often use.  The focal point of my card is a glittered felt snowflake.  I’ve dressed it up with a metal embellishment held in place with a clear crystal brad.  The main panel is white cardstock that I’ve spritzed liberally with both pearl and pewter colored mist sprays.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture the sparkle of the glitter, the shine of the crystal, and the shimmer of the mist sprays all in one photograph.  The sentiment was put together with alphabet stamps.  The layout for this card follows the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, and the mist sprays and clean and simple design qualify it for the current Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge.
