Hi all! I'm still busy in catch-up mode and am here with the winners for our Mixed Media Challenge - TMR#65. The thumbnail display was fantastic.


Super birthday card with so many shades of grey and black.
Love the shine of the different embossing powders and textures.
A brilliant take on this challenge.

A really super clean, simple design.
A great use of a hot glue gun to give the raised and embossed detail on the panel.
Great work!

Fabulous combination of different products here.
Love the screw head brads, the stamped cogs and the wooden ones too.
Love the use of the white pen to suggest movement.

Wonderful panel created with lots of techniques.
Great use of rust paste on the cogs, use of fabric and thread and layered images.
Another fabulous take on this challenge.

This is a really super theme for a masculine card.
Love the watercolour background and the way you've used micro beads for texture!

Absolutely ingenious!!
Such a fun pizza.  My favourite type too - calorie free!!

A wonderfully vintage looking card with lots of texture.
The fibres from the background, the tag and the metallic embellishment.
