Challenge #10, Anything Creative/Mixed Media goes at Love 2 Create Challenges

Welcome back to another challenge! 

As always, the theme this month is  
Anything Creative Mixed Media Goes
You don't have to use Polkadoodles products to enter the challenge.
The challenge closes 31 Juy 2018 so there's loads of time to play along.

Our sponsor for 2018 is Polkadoodles and you can check out all the wonderful selection of Polkadoodles goodies in the shop below.

PRIZE: $10 gift voucher 
from Polkadoodles for our lucky winner, (chosen by - this voucher can be spent across the whole store, so you can use it on dies, stamps, papers, whatever you wish...make sure you check out their store below, they have lots of fab products...

Now let's check out the inspiration from our DT...

Nikky...I've used the fab Chipboard fairy door kit for this project, combined with our Posydoodles stamps. I find you barely need to add anything to the chipboard anyway, but all I did was paint it with gesso and then add a little Vintage Photo distress ink to the edges and glue down all the pieces, tucking in a little reindeer moss along the way. I stamped flowers and embossed with white embossing powder then just added a sprinkle of my fave Frantage powders and that was it...
... and this is a 2nd version of this kit - completely different when it uses bright colours! These papers and stamps were all from this Splash of Summer kit here....

Gemma- I have an altered house shaped chipboard blank to share with you all today that I used some wonderful Polkadoodles stamps on along with different paints and sprays from my stash. More details can be found on my blog.

Terry: I have made a card for you this month with Summer colors, I worked on the background with Distress Oxides and played with lots of stamps from Belle Papillon and Regal Peacock. Just love both stampsets especially the smaller stamps are very versatile. I have colored the butterflies with the same colors Distress Oxides and all the smaller flowers too, to fit everything together. I hope I am giving you some inspiration for this month's challenge

Julia I there I have made a little mixed media card, I actually went for a walk and picked up some sticks especially for this project. I also used some packaging to create a textured background. The card was inspired by Nikky's gorgeous new Critters collection which you can find here 
I used the Foxy Fun Felt kit for the little Felt mushroom and the Nuts about you stamp set to create the little Acorns and then the dies from Beary Hugs for the foliage. Full details on my blog.
