SweetStamps Mixed Media Canvas

Today at SweetStamps, we are calling out for Anything Goes project. 
This week, my project is a little different from my normal creations and there is a reason for that. 
I am still unpacking and organizing my craft space and to be honest with you, I can not locate my tape gun!!!  I do not want to go out and buy a new one either...Those babies aren't cheap.
So I had to create something that did not involve paper, dies, Copic..etc.

The project really does shimmer more in person. 
Enjoyed applying all the layers of gesso and embossing paste and having extremely inky fingers, after the process.   Now I need to stock the Piccolo Accents in my collection!!  :) 

Have a great week and I hope to see you enter this weeks challenge.
Here are a few of the products I used on my project that can be found on the SweetStamp shop.

{GDT} Cardz 4 Guyz: Jungle Fun

Good morning-
Geez... These days are just swimming by me.  I thought today was Thursday!!  If that were really the case I would be late for everything this week!! 

I'm back this week to share a card I made for this weeks challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz
The theme is: 
I was in a bit of panic mode when I saw this weeks theme.  I don't have anything jungle!!
I thought I had another Lawn Fawn stamps, but I didn't have it and it was too late to order it, so I winged it.  Then seeing this weeks line up, it also included "wildlife"!!!  Phew!!  SAFE!!

So for my card today, I used the Koala from Lawn Fawn: Critters Down Under.  I masked and added two more trees to the scene.   I created the background with distress inks and colored the image using my Copic markers.  I tried giving the Koala little bit of texture, but I didn't want to over do it...but you can see a little from the picture. 
I also added a little dimension on the trees, since this weeks challenge at Lawn Fawn is all about "Dimensions".  The sentiment is from The Alley Way Stamps: Deep in the Woods

Hope you will stop by and join us this week and check out the Cardz 4 Guyz Design Team...
