Hello everyone!
Всем привет!
Can you stay within one style for a long time? I feel, that I am more and more interested in Mixed Media projects, not only CAS. Today I am sharing one of my first attempts to make something different. It is still pretty clean, I am not yet comfortable with different textures. We shall see where I get to in some time. Here is my card for The Mixed Media Card Challenge #14.

А Вы можете долго делать работы в одном стиле? Я сейчас чувствую, что меня все больше начинает интересовать миксед медиа, и сегодня я показываю одну из моих первых попыток сделать что-то не совсем привычное. Открытка по-прежнему довольно клиновая, я еще не чувствую свободы с разными текстурами, но увидим, куда меня это увлечение уведёт. Это моя работа для The Mixed Media Card Challenge #14.
Birthday Card with Live Laugh Love from IndigoBlu by Sweet Kobylkin
I started with stamping a flock of butterflies and a rose branch with Jet Black Archival Ink on a piece of IndigoBlu Mixed Media Card and colouring both images with Distress Markers. Then I heat embossed the vertical border pattern with transparent EP. Using the Distress Micro Glaze I sealed the images of butterflies and the branch. Afterwards I distressed the whole card with Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint DIs.

Первым делом я сделала оттиски бабочек и розовой ветки на кардстоке для миксед медиа от IndigoBlu чернилами Jet Black Archival Ink и раскрасила их Distress Markers. Затем с левой стороны сделала прозрачный эмбоссинг вертикального бордюра. С помощью Distress Micro Glaze я запечала раскрашенных бабочек и ветку и затонировала всю панель Aged Mahogany и Peeled Paint дистрессами.
To create the sentiment I painted a piece of Manila CS with Tarnished Brass DP, let it dry completely and die cut the sentiment. I covered the sentiment with Multi Medium Matte and generously covered it with Distress Glitter in Antique Linen. Later I adhered the decorated panel to a white cardbase and assembled the rest of the card.
Для создания надписи я покрыла кусочек Manila кардстока дистресс краской Tarnished Brass, дала ему полностью высохнуть и вырубила слова. Затем я их покрыла Multi Medium Matte и засыпала Distress Glitter цвета Antique Linen. Осталось только приклеить панель на открытку и приклеить надпись.

Скажу честно, одна из причин создания этой работы - желание попробовать новинку от Тим Хольца - Distress Micro Glaze. я осталась очень довольна её применением. Действительно, её очень легко наносить, и лучше всего пальцами. При использовании можно контролировать область нанесения по лёгкому блеску. После протирания бумажной салфеткой блеск исчезает. Мой совет слегка не доходить до контуров оттиска. Я слишком далеко залезла вокруг розового листа, а с бабочками получилось нормально.
With this card I am playing along at the following challenges:
