Let me show you the projects I have for you today!

Today, I have a couple of mixed media cards, easy style, love these new stamps.

Hope: For this project I used J22009 Feather stamp, I stamped the image on a piece of watercolor paper in Stazon Claret and Emerald City using my MISTI, then cleaned up my stamp and inked the image with Versamark Watermark and added clear embossing powder, ten heat set. 
After that I added Turquoise and Copper Metallic Color Burst, after the image got dried, trimmed it and added it a strip of golf metallic tap.
Stamped Hope sentiment from Survivor set on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black.
Panels were adhered to a white card base.

Believe: For this card I started with the H22012 Mandala image, stamped in Versamark Watermark ink, then added white embossing powder and heat set. After that I sponged the background with Distress Oxide inks, after that I stamped the L22013 French Document in Brown Stazon ink.
I stamped the F22003 Leaf on a piece of white cardstock in Emerald City Stazon Ink, then stamped the French Document on top and added clear embossing powder, then cut out the piece and adhered it to the main panel. The Believe sentiment from Survivor set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo black, added silver thread and sequins. Panels were added to a white card base.
