MFT August Teasers - Day 2!

Hi there and welcome to the second day of teasers from My Favorite Things! We've got some beautiful sets to tease today! Make sure you head on over to the MFT Blog to check out all of today's details and to find out how you can win big just for commenting!

I went mixed media today in honor of the new set from Mona Pendleton called Timeless. I've also used the new Collage Backgrounds, Time Pieces Die-namics, Pierced Circle STAX Die-namics, Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics, Mini Royal Roses Die-namics, Fishtail Flags STAX, Blueprints 6 Die-namics, and the Graduated Hexagons Stencil.

Here's the card in all its mixed media glory! I used all kinds of fun stuff here. I rubbed (sounds funny) the gears, the background layer, the flowers, and the overlay on the beautiful clock with this cool stuff called Inka Gold Metallic Rub and a soft cloth. I then went over most of those same items with some liquid gesso. The base layer was looking like it needed something so I used some modeling paste and the Graduated Hexagons stencil and went to town. It made all the difference in how the card looked. I used to be afraid of mixed media. I didn't really "get it", but it is really fun to get messy, because you really can't make a mistake. If you do, you just paint over it. LOL.

Here are the products I used on my card.
