Super Impressed

I was fascinated by the MIX134 Mixability challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. You "press" flowers and leaves with your Big Shot!

Gardening is an even bigger hobby of mine than paper crafting, so I ventured out to my front flower garden, shears in hand. I learned a few things along the way: most flowers are too "juicy." I threw away a LOT of backgrounds that were just too gross to use. {smile} Plant blood everywhere. Also, less is more. Which is something I forget a lot when I'm crafting. Anyway, this is one of my experiments that turned out well, I think!

To make it "mixed media," I added some stamping in the new Archival Black Ink from Stampin Up, as well as a few pearls. The sentiment is from my favorite set, Watercolor Wishes!

Give this technique a try and see what you get!
